ECEF has developed an array of services that can assist the patient and caregiver through the esophageal cancer journey with the following services:
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 a free monthly Support Group Conference Call Meetings for Esophageal Cancer patients and caregivers. In addition, we have begun a conference call support group for people who have lost a loved one to this dreaded disease. We also have a support group for patients and who have experienced a recurrence.
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.
