a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity, working to raise awareness, encourage early detection and fund research of esophageal cancer....in hopes of a cure.

This fundraiser is to honor our father/husband Scott Edward Dye who passed away from Stage IV Esophageal Cancer on December 13th, 2015.

It seems like only just yesterday we found out our father was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Our father went to the hospital for chest pain on 11/13/15 and after the CAT scan was completed the doctors found a mass on his liver. That is when his primary doctor did more tests (Endoscopy) and blood work, and results came back with esophageal cancer stage IV on 11/30/15. Once the cancer was known there was nothing but vomiting, nausea and dehydration that came from it in the coming days and weeks. It was like we were watching him quickly go downhill just days after he was diagnosed. During this time a port was put in so that chemotherapy could start and the goal was to FIGHT and beat this nightmare. By 12/9/15 he was transported back to the hospital due to a stomach hemorrhage. He was clinging to his life as his kidneys started to fail. Our father was in ICU and was too weak to start his chemo. This was all happening way to fast and we couldn’t process that he was diagnosed with cancer let alone that he passed away on 12/13/15 just a month after symptoms and diagnoses were given.

To see someone you love pass away in front of your eyes is the most unexplainable feeling you can have and you will remember it forever.

We wanted to find away to help with funding and research. So we have teamed up with The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation as a way to raise awareness and remember our father, and to help others become aware of symptoms and early detection of cancer.

FAST FACTS:

Esophageal cancer has increased over 700% in the past four decades and is the fastest growing cancer in the United States and western world.

Esophageal cancer research receives very little private or government funding.

Risk factors includes: acid reflux, (Gerd-chronic heartburn is a common symptom), obesity, poor, nutrition, tobacco use and/or smoking, heavy drinking and Barrett's esophagus.

There is no standard or routine screenings to detect esophageal cancer in its earlier stages. Symptoms often arise too late, once the cancer spread; thus making it difficult to treat.

The overall 5-year survival rate is 19.2%. Stage IV has a survival rate of 4.8%

In 2015, The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation was able to award esophageal cancer research funding for the very first time. Then in November, 2018, The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation awarded esophageal cancer research funding for the second time.

The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation also raised national And international awareness. Your continued support directly impacts and sustains this mission!

The Salgie Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service. salgi.org Mailing address: P.O. Box 1912,East Greenwich, RI, 02818
