            I don't think my first message posted. My dad was told at first they would be doing surgery, chemo and radiation. Now it's 4 chemo pills a day and chemo through his port every 21 days. I just want my dad to be happy. He's worked his butt off his entire life.  Selfishly I want time to make more memories worth him. He how ever doesn't seem to want that. He's so sick after chemo  and then he's only just ok...

                    I want to thank Todd and Cmarie (I think that is her user name) I can't find my glasses. Thank you for giving me some hope for my father. My father's brother just passed away May 18th from complications due to a tumor in the brain. He knew for 3 years but told no one (not even my cousins). It was devastating. Then my dad was diagnosed with stage iv esophageal cancer. It has metastasized to the lymph nodes and a spot ...

                      Hi. My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer 3 weeks ago this coming Friday (Aug 10th)
                      August 10th 2018 is also the day he starts chemotherapy. My dads 73rd bday is Aug 8th and my grandpas bday is Aug 10th.

                      I'm scared to death. I know my father is scared as well. My sister and brother are terrified as well along with his wife,ex-wife, 2 grandsons, 3 nieces and 1 nephew.

                      I just want someone to tell me we have more time. This is the first time have used the internet to look anything up about his cancer.

                      Please excuse any typos.

                      I just need some hope and if there really is none I need to know. I'm not done making memories...please someone tell me my dad could survive this.

                      Let me first say my dad is a work a holuc. His brother (my uncle just passed away May 18th.

                      Any advice or the truth will be appreciated.
                      Thank you
                      Christine
