I just lost one of my closest friends to esophageal cancer. He was diagnosed Sept, 2002 and passed away April, 2003. As soon as he found out he had EC, he became reclusive, moved back home with his parents, and would not see his friends, talk to us, or even answer emails. We continued to call but he wouldnt come to the phone - - his parents would keep us updated on his condition. I don't understand why he wouldn't let me be there for him. I am having a very difficult time dealing with this. Anyone have any insight on what he was feeling...why he pushed us away?
