Heartburn Cancer UK
HCUK is a national charity having amalgamated with the McCord Fund which was founded in memory of Michael McCord who died from oesophageal cancer in 2002. Michael's death was preventable had he been aware of the danger of long-term persistent heartburn and appropriate investigation. He is one of thousands who die each year unnecessarily.
Our Support Networks
We have a very active and successful Support Network based in Cambridge – HCUK East Anglia and another in London – HCUK London.
If you live within the East Anglia or London area you might like to join their regular meetings and exchange views and ideas on what has helped you. Perhaps fundraise in anyway you wish which could help HCUK nationally or the support networks. We've had marathon runners, beard growing initiatives, trekking to Everest Base Camp. Not only does this raise money as importantly it raises awareness.
We have leaflets, posters and flyers for distribution in gastroenenterology departments, GP surgeries and pharmacies. Perhaps you could help distribute them?
Please support us in some way and make a difference to other peoples lives in raising awareness so that the rise in oesophageal cancer is stemmed.
Mimi McCord is either a phone call or email: firstname.lastname@example.org away and she can help guide you in the right direction.
