Over the course of ECEF’S existence we have become aware of other organizations and Foundations whose goal is to educate people about esophageal cancer and offer insights into how this disease effect the people in the United States and even the World. We capture in this section those sites that will help people with esophageal cancer and it is through this effort that we share in the knowledge about this dreaded disease. We recognize the following organizations:

This meeting attended by over 100 physicians, surgeons, medical oncologists and patient advocates presents the goals that the NCI will focus on in the next 5-10 years in the stomach/esophageal cancer area. The web site for this report is http://planning.cancer.gov/
