    wlemons- My husband was diagnosed similarly. Stage 4 adenocarcinoma at the GE junction. He was not able to get the surgery as the cancer was already multiple metastatic. He did many many rounds of chemo and radiation, but lost his battle earlier this year after 15 mos.

    If you have any questions or things you are not sure of, please let me know. I'm happy to share anything I can. I was his primary caregiver and advocate throughout almost 2 years of cancer treatment.

    Rachel- Welcome! I was also the primary caregiver for my husband throughout his battle with esophageal cancer. He was stage 4b at diagnosis, and lived about 15 mos. through treatment. I am also pretty local to you. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. Just ask!!! It helps a lot to have people who have BTDT around.

    RIP Sally Ride. You ride with the stars. You inspired a generation of girls and young women to take on science and take flight! Another victim of cancer taken too soon.

    Are you staying in SF for treatment? My husband was treated at UC Davis Cancer Center in Sacto, which is a nationally rated cancer center. They are wonderful!! Hope you have good doctors wherever you are being treated. Let me know if you need any caregiver advice.
