Members meet esophageal cancer patients when they are in town for appointments, pre and post surgery, provide a newletter every couple of months and are available 24/7 to talk with patients and care givers. We meet for coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner or whatever is convenient — we’ve even met members for lunch from California at Jacksonville International Airport as they were traveling!
When: The Vincent Stabile Building North, 4481 Mellish Drive, Jacksonville, Florida on the Mayo Clinic campus.
For Whom: Any esophageal cancer patient, survivor, care giver or medical personnel no matter where one is receiving medical attention – all hospitals, physicians, any state – our members are scattered all over but interested in helping and sharing experiences of recovery and return to normalcy.
