I have been looking for somewhere to bounce information and news off of others for sometime now. Now, as I'm sitting in the hospital with my dad for his chemo infusion, I stumble upon this forum FULL of familiar stories and encouraging statements!! Thank God!! My dad is 67doing years young and has been fighting EC since 2010. He has had his ups and downs. He lost his voice fairly recently, which was a huge stressor to him! He used to be a tenor in the church choir and someday hopes to return. And after a stint of vomiting and not being able to eat solid foods for a few weeks, he has made TREMENDOUS strides!! We recieved some very discouraging news from the oncologist which led to some research of alternative medicine. They insisted he needed a feeding tube and there would be no way around it. Then they told us his quality of life would most likely diminish. I was led to Oasis of Hope Hospital. They really encouraged survival! They gave us strength and hope. We have a new perspective of Cancer now. My faith is stronger. I'm just so happy to have found this site. Please keep in touch. It's encouraging to see so many others with EC pulling through!! I look forward to reading about everything!!
