Welcome to the new website of the Esophageal Cancer Support Group of Philadelphia (ECSOP). We are independent of any hospital or medical organization made up of patients and families battling Esophageal Cancer. We are a unique Esophageal Cancer Support Group in the area comprised of members who have had esophagectomies, radiation and chemotherapy treatment because of Esophageal Cancer. We have all “been there and done that”.

We hold each other’s hand along the way and as our motto states, No One Fights Alone!
