    I am an esophageal cancer stage III survivor of 18 years. We created the Esophageal Cancer Education Foundation www.fightec.org in part to help patients with their journey through this disease.

    We have co-authored a book called 100 Questions and Answers about Esophageal Cancer published by Jones and Bartlett and you can get at any book store.

    We have also published a book called Esophagectomy Post Surgical Guide Questions & Answers published by Authorhouse that you can get at any bookstore or on our web site www.fightec.org

    We have support groups that meet by conference call on a monthly basis. Patients calling in with quality of life questions and hearing how other patients have handled a specific issue.. Go to www.fightec.org and click on services to get more information.

    We also have a 24 hour hotline to help with quality of life questions as well. We have a You Tube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDkh7_H9BOnNASdmG4pdF0g . If you subscribe to this channel, you will receive notice each time we add a video about esophageal cancer to it.

    Good luck

      We have a pretty large group of EC members, some of them will stop by to give you some information. In the meantime, you can look up the term "Keytruda" in the experiences tab at the top of the page to see all of the conversations that mention Keytruda. We hope you have successful treatments.
