Why We're Raising

Esophageal Cancer Research is Critically Underfunded: Esophageal cancer (adenocarcinoma) is considered one of the fastest growing and deadliest cancers in the United States, according to the National Cancer Institute. Esophageal cancer (EAC) has increased over 733% in the past four decades. Despite its rapid increase and poor prognosis, esophageal cancer research receives inadequate private and/or government funding. The National Cancer Institute spends, on average, only half of one percent for esophageal cancer research from it’s total budget. In 2017, NCI allocated $31,843,910 for esophageal cancer research funding out of it’s total $5,636.4 billion budget. In 2018, the NCI received an increase for their total budget by 5%, or $284 million from the previous fiscal year. However, in 2018, NCI again decreased its investment in research of esophageal cancer to $29,804,836. The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity working to raise awareness, encourage early detection and to fund research of esophageal cancer…in hopes of a cure.™. Nathan Reisdorff was taken from his friends and family much too soon at the age of 51. He was an amazing person, husband & father. Nathan was a strong supporter for early detection of Esophageal Cancer.
