I know there are several people - fighters, supporters, caregivers, friends, & family that have joined this site in the 12 months I have been "gone". I'm sure my post was depressing to some of you...so I want to give you some light.
I'm not sure I ever posted this so starting at ground zero...
About 2 months after Brendon was diagnosed with Esophageal Cancer, his uncle was also diagnosed. Jim lives in Houston and had the opportunity to receive treatment at the Mayo clinic. I do not know what stage Jim was diagnosed but do know that it was not stage iv. Jim received radiation and chemotherapy for several months and was unfortunately unable to travel to make it to Brendon's funeral. Long story short... Jim is showing no signs of cancer at this time and scans have all been clean!!! He is gaining some of his weight back and no longer is a smoker. We pray to God each day for the achievements Jim has made and is making every day!
This cancer seems to take control of each and every person differently so all we can do is be thankful for all the people who have fought and are currently winning!!! Maybe one day, with new discoveries, sciences, medicines, we can fight, win, and take home every single trophy that says Cancer...Been There, Done That.
