Esophageal Cancer Wristbands

Raise Awareness of Esophageal Cancer

Esophageal cancer is not common, but almost always fatal. More than 16,000 people are diagnosed with esophageal cancer each year, and less than 20% survive. Esophageal Cancer Awareness Month is in November, with the week of Thanksgiving designated as Esophageal Cancer Awareness week. The awareness color for esophageal cancer is purple, or periwinkle. Esophageal cancer wristbands are often used at awareness events to help bring the need for knowledge, research, and funding into the public’s eye.

Wristbands For A Cause

Most esophageal cancer awareness events focus on raising awareness of the risk factors that may lead to the disease. Middle-aged men who are overweight with a history of heartburn seem to be at the highest risk. Because the disease often has no symptoms in the early stages, it is usually detected at a more advanced stage that is more challenging to treat. Your custom esophageal cancer wristbands can focus on early screening, lifestyle change and general increased awareness of the disease.
