My 63 year old dad was diagnosed with stage IV esophageal cancer this week. It's been a roller coaster with Christmas and having to wait the extra days for results. He is in Boston and is being treated at the Dana Farber Center at Brigham and Women's hospital. Anyone have info on this facility?
He is being intentionally vague with us (his adult kids), but we know this is pretty horrendous news. Cancer has also been found in his liver and a little in his stomach. They are inserting a port on Wednesday and starting chemo shortly thereafter. The type of chemo is unknown as they are waiting for HER(?)receptor blood results.
Any hints on support would be very appreciated. my sister and I are in Chicago so its extra hard as we can't be with him. Thanks all.
