Story

In the UK there may be one million people with Barrett's Oesophagus a potentially pre-cancerous condition claiming the life of one person an hour.

Barrett's Wessex, officially "Wessex Friends of Barrett's Oesophagus Campaign", provides support and raises awareness of the condition principally within the Wessex area. It doesn't fund research directly but passes those funds to Barrett's Oesophagus Campaign (BOC) for which this page exists.

This page sends research donations via Barrett's Wessex to BOC and will be used for funding the United Kingdom Barrett's Registry which helps research into the condition and it's management with the hope of finding cures and preventing deaths from oesophageal adenocarcinoma.
