My husband's aunt was just diagnosed with esophageal cancer involving her trachea and voicebox (one in the same or seperate?) and is set for surgery at MD Anderson. She is a very visual person and would feel much better if she could see photos of the hospital itself for starters. We went to the MD Anderson website but there doesn't seem to be anything other than a short etour which wasn't helpful at all. We don't know the surgeon's name yet but will get more info on that on Monday. For now a few pictures or a note from someone who has been there describing it would be a huge help. Our prayers are with all of you and thank you in advance for your help. May we all be well.

    Dear teresawagley,

    The easiest way to locate other members with similar experiences is to type keywords (such as "MD Anderson," "esophageal cancer," etc.) on the search bar at the top of the home page. You can refine your search by clicking on the different categories of content listed below the list of keyword matches that you get from your search. The major categories of content on CSN are discussion boards, personal web pages, etc. For example, if you are looking for a personal web page, you can limit your search to personal web pages only by clicking on the "personal web pages" category. Remember that you must be logged in if you want to post anything on a discussion boards, view personal web pages, use the chat room, etc.

    We hope this information is useful,
    Your CSN Staff
