Though guidelines suggest screening starts at 50, researcher says it's premature to change them

After my many postings on this site over the past year, I lost my hero last Friday Jan 20th to this evil disease.
Exactly a year after being diagnosed, my dad died in his sleep at home peacefully with me & my mum at his side.
We are heartbroken.
I am currently raising money for OCHRE (The Oesopgaheal Cancer Charity) in the UK, I am doing a 10K trek with friends this May to raise awareness.
Please consider sponsoring us, every penny counts towards helping others to have a future. My dad had no chance, and no options, no one should be faced with that.

I am so sorry for your loss. Early diagnosis does help so much because it does leave us with options. Apparently your Dad did not have the options because of a late diagnosis. Again, my sympathies to you and your mom. Best wishes as you do your 10K trek.

I'm sorry for the loss of your dad and hero. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
I'm sure he's very proud of your efforts to help bring awareness and put a stop to this beast. Thank you!

I am so sorry for your loss. May wonderful memories of your sweet hero bring you comfort.
Life is eternal, and love is immortal,
and death is only a horizon;
and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight.
