The Daniel M. Horyn Foundation strives to raise awareness of esophageal cancer, a disease that is rarely detected until later stages with formative malignancies. Little research and drug development funding exists specifically for esophageal cancer, leaving standard treatments and unpredictable combinations thereof to patients with late stages of the disease. The Daniel M. Horyn Foundation supports esophageal cancer research and the introduction of new therapies for the treatment of esophageal cancer at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, specifically for Dr. Victoria M. Villaflor, MD and her phenomenal team. With focused fundraising and education, we strive to improve the clinical outcomes for patients suffering from the disease.
