ECEF has developed a list of services that can assist a patient and caregivers as they journey through esophageal cancer .
It has also developed a Corporate Awareness Service Program that can be used by Heath or Human Resource Departments of Corporations with respect to informing their employees about esophageal cancer.
PATIENT & CAREGIVER SERVICES
Post Surgical Guide
With the Medical Advisory Committee’s help we have published a book called Esophagectomy Post Surgical Guide Questions & Answers that is available on this web site and at local book stores. It is published by Authorhouse.
The ECEF Quarterly Newsletter is presented to all members of the foundation that have requested a copy be sent to them. The Newsletter contains links to recent articles about Esophageal Cancer and various aspects of the disease. In addition the newsletter will also give our members information on the projects that the Foundation is working on and the status of fundraising events that are being held to raise funds for ECEF.
The ECEF Hotline was established for Esophageal Cancer Patients and Caregivers to assist them with quality of life questions. This is not an emergency number and there will not be an operator on-call at all times. The Hotline is also not to be used for medical questions as those should only be addressed by your doctor. Any responses received from this call should first be checked with your doctor before implementing the suggestion.
The Esophageal Cancer Education Foundation facilitates free monthly Support Group Conference Call Meetings for Esophageal Cancer patients and caregivers. We also have a Support Group for patients who have ha a recurrence or have a Stage IV condition.
We have an esophageal cancer survivor who is a financial adviser, with a major brokerage firm, who is willing to assist esophageal cancer patients with their financial needs as they go through their esophageal cancer journey.
In addition we offer surgeons both domestic and international a pamphlet that will recap the services we provide patients and caregivers. This pamphlet can be given to their patients as they leave the hospital and begin their recovery process.
