On January 7th, 2008 I received a diagnosis of stage 4 esophageal cancer following an endoscopy that I had scheduled to investigate intermittent difficulty I had been having with swallowing food. Since then I have had numerous chemotherapy treatments and multiple remission/recurrence scenarios. This blog is so that friends and family can follow along as I fight this battle.

I'll post more as soon as I can but today is day #1 (of 3) of the octreotide scan that both MSKCC and Dr. Richards requested. On a hunt to make sure we know where any neuro-endocrine cancer might be hiding.
