“I was shocked to find out I had esophageal cancer – if you have trouble swallowing see your GP”

Ireland has one of the highest rates of esophageal cancer in Europe, with up to 500 people diagnosed each year nationwide. While symptoms can resemble a number of other conditions, early detection is critical to successful treatment. Each year, the Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) hosts Lollipop Day, a fundraising event designed to both raise awareness of this difficult type of cancer and provide important funds for cancer research.

For the past two years, the Covid-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdowns have limited their fundraising efforts. But this year, the charity is returning to its traditional street format this Friday and Saturday, asking the public to support the event by purchasing lollipops and pins to help raise awareness of esophageal cancer in communities across the country.
