    Hi Windoc
    Cancer survivors should not have to face cancer alone. That's why we are here to support you. Please continue to fill out your profile and keep us up to date on your journey so we can get to know you better. Ask any questions you have and if you feel a rant comming on post that too you will get many responses. Also be sure to check out the PINBOARD and BLOG pages; there is lots of good inspiration, information and a few laughs
    I am a 9 year survivor of stage IV esophageal cancer
    I am also a survivor of 2 other cancers. In face today I am celebrating 6 years survival of another cancer. On April 1, 2013 the Doctor told me that there was a 1 in 100 chance that uterine cancer would be back in before 5 years. Ha Ha here I am best April prank EVER. Well I can't say I am exactly cancer free because I have to see the Dr. because I suspect that my skin cancer is back.
    I won't say survival is easy but it is doable and well worth the effort. Mark April 26 2042 on your calendar that will be my 100th birthday, you are invited to my party.

    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
