I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer April 2007, five weeks of chemo and radiation. July 2007 had a minimal invasive esophgectomy. I am 72 years old retired from law enforcement. I am doing all I did before E/C. Riding and taking care of my horses, skiing, hunting, golfing, gardening, traveling and taking care of my acreage. With my new normal, I just can’t do as much or with the same intensity. I mentor cancer patients with Imerman angels.

Hi Jon, so happy to hear you are cancer free! My mom, age 64, was diagnosed on Friday with EC, they are not sure if it is stage 2 or 3 yet as they are waiting for results of her pet scan, which she is scheduled for on this Saturday. She is starting radiation and chemo early next week. I am scared and clueless as I have no idea what to expect. I am reaching out because my mom cannot eat hardly anything and it breaks my heart. She basically chokes on anything - she has been eating cheesecake, ice cream and eggs. And shakes. I was wondering if you had any ideas suggestions on foods or shakes ? Not sure if you will but thought I would ask. Thank you for sharing your success story and I hope my mom can share one day too! Also, any feedback for what I can do for her post radiation/chemo treatments? Expectations ? Thanks again! read more.
Jon, thanks taking questions. Any advice with regard to treatment and surgery that you would give to anybody? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org read more.
