I think it's important to share the 'good news' stories. My Dad had his second endoscopy and CT scan last week and got the all clear today. I realise he is not out of the woods yet, but our confidence is growing. He has not had surgery due to his age, but a full-on combination of chemo and radiation which has done the job (at least for now). The oncologist said the success is due to a combination of detecting the cancer early, hitting it hard with treatment and a bit of luck. He also explained that a lot of the stats on the net are somewhat outdated and that there are more and more success stories (even without surgery). Now to celebrate!
