I'm a happily married stay at home mom with two amazing kids. I was diagnosed on 7/12/13, just before my 41st birthday. For years I had a sore throat when I woke in the morning and I always thought it was allergies causing post-nasal drip, because I've always had sinus problems. Didn't realize the sore throat was a sign of GERD and I had acid sitting in my throat every night! Unfortunately, I didn't recognize the symptoms until I was stage IV with major mets to my liver and a few other minor spots. I will be undergoing interventional radiology treatments to my liver in the next few months...I've been on chemo (FOLFOX then FOLFIRI) and herceptin since August 2013...the plan is to clear the liver so that I can have surgery on my primary esophageal tumor. Wish me luck!
