The Esophageal Cancer Awareness Association Inc

The Esophageal Cancer Awareness Association (ECAA) is an organization dedicated to providing outreach for esophageal cancer patients, caregivers, and survivors; to increase public awareness of this disease, and to provide education and information in a supportive environment. The ECAA is a purely volunteer group with unpaid officers. In early 2001, about two dozen members of the ″EC-Group″ mailing list on the Association of Cancer Online Resources began exploring ways to help esophageal cancer patients, survivors and their caregivers deal more effectively with the uncertainties of this disease and its consequences. By fall 2001, they had created ″The projECt″ to help each other obtain and organize available information. In February, 2002 they had developed a mission statement and began formalizing the organization. They prepared by laws for a not-for-profit corporation registered in New York State. "The projECt″" was to become the ECAA. There are two major types of esophageal cancer, squamous cell and adenocarcinoma of the esophagus. These two conditions make up between 12,000 and 18,000 cases per year in the United States. ECAA was formed in July 2002 and conducted its first annual meeting that same year. It provides support groups, patient networking, and advocacy for patients and families. ECAA also provides education to professionals. The Esophageal Cancer Awareness Association (ECAA) was formed at its first annual meeting in Philadelphia on July 28, 2002. In June, 2004, the ECAA received IRS approval tax-exempt organization.
