I woujld like to know how to get the information in the 15 pages of notes on the diet for my dad.  He was diagnosed with stage lV esphogael cancer today.  I can't really write about it right now.  I feel such shock and panic.  My dad is at MD Anderson in Houston, but they are saying no surgery is possible and he will have to have aggressive chemo and radiation for any chance of remission.  Please tell me more about this diet and how to help my dad.

Don't be upset.  My hisband is in the same boat.  Had the chemo & radiation.  Finished those treatments in the beginning of November, 2006.  He had testing done today and everything is stable. Nothing has grown, nor is there anything new.  Actuall ther has been more shrinkage.  Hope this gives you hope.  If you do receive the diet from someone could you foward it to me.  I would love to review it.  I am a dietitian.  All my best wished to you & your family.

Hi Ladycordelia,

I know exactly how you feel..I am deeply in love with this man and he just found out that he has eosophagus cancer, his doctor believed it is stage 2b and that it spread to his lymph node, but his radiologist is not so sure yet...he is going for a 2nd opinion on thursday..I pray that everything will go fine..it is surely very depressing to read about the survival rate...but I believe that a good state of mind help them survive this...I try to make him laugh and keep him busy thinking about other thing than cancer...I wish you friend reconsider telling his family..they deserve to know..he will need their support
