Cancer of the esophagus is a devastating and often lethal disease.

It is a rare, little known cancer that has become the second fastest growing and second deadliest cancer in America.

Individuals often do not present symptoms until the cancer is advanced.

The Esophageal Cancer Awareness Association (ECAA) is dedicated to raising awareness and furthering education on the signs and symptoms of this awful disease.

Outreach: The ECAA provides a resource for patients and caregivers to have one-on-one conversations with a contact with personal experience of the disease as a survivor or caregiver.

Awareness: The ECAA is working to bring the signs and symptoms of esophageal cancer to the general public. ECAA volunteers are dedicated to creating understanding of this cancer and its effects.

Fundraising: The ECAA raises funds to promote awareness and research. The ECCA is an all-volunteer organization and all funds raised go directly to the cause.

Information: The ECAA provides brochures, speakers, and web-based information on all aspects of esophageal cancer.
