My name is Debbie and I was diagnosed July 12, 2013. I had gone in to have an upper endoscope done as I was having trouble swallowing food. Diagnosis came back cancer. Oncologist said that it was early stages, but wanted to treat very aggressively Sept. 3 I started radiation every day for 36 days and 100 hours of chemo (1 day drip and home with a chemo pack for 5 days) and then round 2 of Chemo the last week of radiation....another 100 hours. I ended up in the hospital during my second round of chemo for blood clots in both lungs. Went in for surgery on November 19 (6 hours) and in the hospital for 9 days. I am 5 years NED this year. I'm married 37 years with 2 kids and 7 grandkids. My oldest granddaughter said that she thinks I got healed from cancer because she prayed every day and I surely believe that!!
