Choose to live

Type: 
Book
Description: 

I' ve been a cancer servivor for almost 5 years. Both my saliva and Thyroid glands function at about 10% so I'm on medication for this, my hearing and eyesight on my left side are deminished, my ear is constantly full of fluid, which I had a mastoidectomy performed on that didn't work. My immune system sucks. I've had a very painful bout with shingles, which I've been told I could have again in a couple of years. Needless to say I'm not a very "happycamper". But this book was recommended to me by my doctor, and it has helped me change my outlook on my life. I've accepted that this is not the smae body that I've known for the last 51 years and I'm learning to live with that

Esophageal Cancer Insight and Resources

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

Some encouraging survivor information is available at www.eccafe.org. The site maintains a list of just some of the visitors to the site who have remained cancer-free for at least five years. The list identifies the person’s staging (e.g., T3N1M0) as well as the type of treatment undergone by the individual (e.g., surgery and chemotherapy). You can access the list at www.eccafe.org/cnt/survivor.html.

You may also find it helpful and encouraging to communicate with a person who has survived the exact same diagnosis as you. If this interests you, check out the esophageal cancer group at www.acor.org. Simply post an e-mail setting forth your staging information (e.g., T3N1M0) and ask to be contacted by someone who has survived the same diagnosis. Someone will respond. You can access the forum at listserv.acor.org/archives/ec-group.html. (Note: The site requires you to register before you can access the forum.
