Head and Neck Cancer
After Treatment, Cancer Nutrition, Diet, Emotional Support, Radiation

My brother James was diagnosed with tonsil cancer about 16 years ago. He did 31 days of intense radiation. He had 3rd degree burns when treatment ended. He went thru all the pain without a single complaint. He was cancer free until 2014 when it returned. Since then things have deteriorated. He has a paralyzed vocal chord. Brachial nerve damage which has caused paralysis of his right arm. His airway is closing, and he has very little voice left. He is fed via peg tube because of aspiration. But, he hangs in there, and I am very proud of him I have become his caregiver, his voice, and his right arm.
