I have been just over 3 years since diagnosed with EC. I have been cancer free for almost 2 years. I was cancer free when I had the Ivor Lewis operation March 2016. I had been diagnosed with Stage 4 after finding a malignant spot in my armpit. The surgeon stated "no operation ever"? After more chemo, unable to have radiation, I was declared cancer free. Had a stent put in as I had been unable to eat or even sip water for almost 2 years. Stent failed and was coughing up blood and had removed after a helicoptor flight to hospital, as being life threatening. Opted to have it done again but on the operating table doctor refused. Only option was surgery and the surgeon agreed after more tests. Scans since then have shown no cancer! Be optimistic, never give in or give up to this terrible cancer, have a bit of humor in your life as it helps very much (might be hard, but keep trying), and have faith and prayers, they help! It has been 'Hell' also for my wife and family. Good support and good doctors and hospital are a necessity! My Motto has been: Cancer is not a death sentence...it is a will to live! Cheers!

Hi Tracy and Ruth. My husband has been using Liquid Hope for over a year. It is being fully covered by our insurance. We had to fight with them to get it, but lots of people are succeeding. I strongly encourage everyone that is tube feeding to get this wonderful, all organic, plant-based food for yourself and your loved ones. The standard tube feedings are mostly fake food, full of things like corn syrup, and are poison. My husband is stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma, with a tumor that is high up. He wasn't eligible for surgery because of that. He is a 2.5 year survivor. Still fighting and on Keytruda for 6 months, which is helping thus far. Fight on warriors!

Good day to you. I am Jim. I live in middle georgia and I am a stage 3 cancer survivor. I was found to have a 10.5 cm mass in my lower esophagus in October of 2017. All the goodie. 5 weeks radiation, 6 hits of chemo, massive chest surgery that kept me in the hospital 19 days and a whole line of great looking doctors that were paraded in to look at the survivor. Oh well, God has a plan for me so Im still here, Getting stronger, slowly but I weighed in at 260 when they found it and this morning I weighed 168. I am eating very well considering that I was completely closed up and as time goes on I will be praying for you folks because the only true and successfull medicine is prayer, God bless you.

I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2009 and I survived. It was easy, and I went through a lot, and at the time I didn’t know if I was going to make it but I didn’t give up. Even in the time since I was treated there of been huge advances in the treatments for esophageal cancer. It is survivable, calm but you just can’t give up. I am living a pretty normal life now and I’m happy to say that it is past me.

I forgot to mention I was 34 years old at the time when I was diagnosed, and I was stage III. I had chemo three times, radiation, and 2 esophagectomy’s. It was a lot but it was all worth it.

What did i do to become Cancer free?

Many will not accept this, but I realize at the age of 80 I could not beat Cancer. I turned it over to The Lord....time passed and a confused Doctor look at me and said......

"George...you don't have Cancer anymore"

God Bless

Great news George, our God is awsum! God is still the same as in Bible time days and he's still in the mracle making business! I too, shocked all the cancer care team when given afew months to live, I went home and knew, this same Jesus that washed away all my sin could certainly wash away this wretched cancer once and for all, and I left this cancer problem with God, because I knew God can do what no one els could do. It's almost 8 years of freedom of stage 4 pancreatic cancer and I know, this will never come back! Praise God for all he will do for the whosoever! God is very much alive ! !

Continued good health
