The mission of EC Aware is to provide outreach for esophageal cancer patients, caregivers, and survivors, to increase public awareness of this disease and to offer education and information in a supportive environment.
The ECEF provides a post surgical guide, access to support groups and a 24 hour hotline. The foundation financially also supports research projects that focus on the development of an early warning test for this disease.
NCI's Gastrointestinal Research Group conducts and supports prevention and early detection research on colorectal, esophageal, and other GI cancers, as well as new approaches to clinical prevention studies including immunoprevention.
