This year saw the relaunch of the Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) website, bringing increased awareness and information for those going through oesophageal cancer, their families, friends and fundraisers. OCF is the national charity for oesophageal cancer in Ireland, committed to the eradication of the disease. The charity is made up of volunteers, medical professionals, researchers, patients and survivors, all working together to help those affected live well with a bad cancer.
Key to the OCF website is information and advice for oesophageal cancer patients, and anyone affected by a diagnosis. Raising awareness of symptoms and early diagnosis to better understand the illness, OCF Patient Information guides you through what to expect from diagnosis, through to treatment and, life beyond the hospital walls. The patient information area also includes an extensive resource of short videos from medical experts as well as comprehensive and practical advice on nutrition, minding your mental and physical health along with patient-to-patient support; covering a diverse range of topics.
Whether it’s making a donation, choosing to volunteer or supporting through corporate sponsorship, the OCF has a range of practical ways you can decide to help this small and independent charity, wholly dependent on generous public support to help those who most need it. Find out more about getting involved.
The redesigned OCF website makes it easy for you to support the organisation by buying their charity Christmas cards online. Sent to you by the OCF, they make a considerable difference to the charity’s ongoing fundraising efforts each year. You can buy Christmas cards by clicking here.

Bringing the good fight to a bad cancer, the Oesophageal Cancer Fund is a dynamic community supporting and fundraising for cancer research; playing a one-of-a-kind central role in helping anyone affected by this niche cancer.
