Hi folks , I’m male 52 yrs old with a beautiful family , my wife and two kids 19 & 16 ( m&f )

it’s all happened so quick , I have a large tumour in my mid oesophageal tract (6 cms long) and the PET scan revealed that it has metastasised to lymph modes on my LHS up to my neck.

this means no surgery yet. Also no radiotherapy yet.

chemo starts next week

all a bit crazy but I’m feeling like I can make it 

blessings to all

  • Of course you can make it. You’ve got a beautiful family to make it for. I’m a 59 year old with a wonderful wife (my absolute rock during all of this) 3 kids, 3 stepkids and 3 grandchildren, the youngest of whom just arrived into this world yesterday. I’m fighting this bastard disease for all of them! 

  • Dont give in the this horrible C fight with the right mind set .
