    I am so sorry to hear that you and your husband have had to endure the pain and suffering of this beast. I know how you feel my brother is going through the same thing right now, he's also stage 4 diagnosed in June 2017 just after his 35th birthday. He's on his 3rd chemo regimen and if this one stops working there's only 1 immuntherapy option left. His doctor has been less than great, I feel like the doctor has been ...

        Who put a bee in your bonnet?  Also PatriSolo is suggesting these things alongside of traditional treatment, so I truly do not understand why you keep coming from a place of such that you think he or she is suggesting that people buck all traditional avenues for strictly holsitic. Just in case you are unaware there are kinder ways for you to convey your thoughts and opinions without being so unkind. I hope you h...

          Well that was just rude and uncalled for Chucksan. Also you're incorrect about juicing and holistic care along side of traditional treatment improving chances of success, however everyone is entitled to their own opinion so have a nice day :).

            Hello DeeHour, I'm sorry to hear about your father's diagnosis but I'm glad that you're clearly doing a lot of research and reaching out to others for help and support during this trying time. The people on this site as far, as the esophageal cancer members are concerned anyways, are not very active. I personally really love www.smartpatients.com because they have a very active esophageal cancer community that has be...

              What is your full diagnosis? It would help to know to give proper advice and what not. I'm sorry that you have to deal with this beast, but there are people that beat it. Don't just look at the statistics because they don't mean anything for individual results and don't take all factors into account. Also there is a wesite called www.smartpatients.com that has a very active, supportive and helpful bunch of people tha...

                I was having trouble posting that last response and thought it wasn't working, hence the two different versions. Again thank you for your all of your awesomeness :).

                  Thank you sooooooo much for all of your advice, info, positivity, kind words, guidance and support. I can't even explain how much it means to me right now, though I imagine you have an idea considering you're a veteran in this war. I plan on fully taking advantage of all the great advice and support this site and the people on it have to offer. I have already had some pretty rough days and truly wondered if I had the...

                    My brother was recently diagnosed with stage III possibly stage IV (possible met to liver, we're waiting for the PET scan to fully determine) esophageal adenocarcinoma. He gets his PET scan on Thursday, I'm still hopeful that the liver spot is something else but the docs seem to be pretty sure that it's more cancer. I have been scouring the internet doing research about this and trying to find the nuggets of hope (su...

                      Thank you soooooooo much for all of your advice, info, kind words and support :)!!!! I can't even explain how much it means to me right now, though I suspect that you have an idea considering you're a veteran in this war. I definitely have already experienced some extremely hard days where I seriously wondered if I had the fortitude to deal with this. Especially the day we got the diagnosis, that was literally heart ...
