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.
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 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.
In addition we have a list of Thoracic Surgeons located in different parts of the United States. If you are looking to find a thoracic surgeon that can treat your esophageal cancer in your area we may be of help in this endeavor. Please contact us at 732-385-7461.
