If we are to reduce deaths to oesophageal cancer, we need to raise awareness of the risks of persistent reflux of acid and of Barrett's Oesophagus as a consequence of persistent acid reflux and a potential pre-cursor to the cancer.
Can you help to spread the word?
February is Oesophagus Awareness month. (#OAware)
Can you host a tea party or a coffee morning?
Just let people know about heartburn and it's possible (preventable) progression to cancer.
If you wish to raise funds at the same time, we can lend you collection cans or buckets.
Can you tell your story?
We all have a story to tell.
Do you have Barrett's?
What led you to being diagnosed? Could it possibly make a news story? We can help you prepare a press release.
Even if it doesn't make the papers, stories are always wanted for websites and forums.
If you make any posts on social media regarding oesophagus awareness month,
add the hashtags: #OAware and / or #PTYO as appropriate.
