Should anyone wish to read about my own battle with the Dragon (I call it my Dance with the Dragon... you can dance with a dragon, but one slip and he's gonna eat you!)you can find it online at:http://ngc1514.com/Dragon/

The "D" in Dragon must be capitalized.

The page has not been updated since 2007, but many people have found it interesting. Some call it the best look at the after-surgery recovery found on the web. I don't take credit for that. My wife is a doctor and she wrote the entries for the month after surgery. It gives a different perspective seen through the eyes of a physician.

It's been more than 3 years since I last signed on here.  To all those going through this awful disease, my heart goes out to you.

I will be a 13 year survivor on October 6th, 2013.  Was diagnosed on 10/6/2000 as Stage 2B, had 6 chemo treatments with 5FU, Taxol and Cisplatin, 25 radiation treatments and then a transthoracic esophagectomy on 4/9/2001.  A few bumps in the road, but still doing well.
