I am sorry for you loss danellsar. i think we both started our presence at the same time. my husband had a hard time too, but, he is luckily in remission. i just wanted to give you my condolences. i can't imagine how you feel, but i certainly can relate to the struggle through chemo. by the way, there are camps for kids who's parents went through cancer. i believe they are funded so it would be free for your kids. i live in california so i don't know if they have this where you are. might help your children through this difficult time. all the best to you and your family - dawn

danellsar shared an experience
Loss (My mind/Sense of Humor): Just an update. It's been 2 years since my husband passed away. I'm remarried and starting over. It's still tough a lot of days, and kids have a hard time talking about their dad. I'm happy to help other caregivers who need a shoulder or a hand.

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.
