@lolakimono - Thank you for once again sending out this important reminder.
As you may remember we had a close friend diagnosed with EC - he passed almost 5 yrs to the day he was diagnosed. It is a horrible disease.

My husband passed from this cancer, it was brutal.
He had survived lymphoma
He had been diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus and during a routine visit with his oncologist, the cancer in his esophagus was found. He lived 9 months after. I use the term "lived" loosely. But at least he had the time with his family.
If anyone reading this is struggling with indigestion often, as well as reflux, see a doctor regularly. Follow the treatment plan. We so often write it off to overeating a special meal, or "I ate something that didn't agree with me" when it could be something more serious, but treatable.
Condolences to those who have lost loved ones

Someone I know just passed away from this 2 weeks ago. He was diagnosed in January.
He had been having a horrible time with indigestion and acid reflux and was seeing a doctor who kept giving him pills like Prilosec and telling him to watch his diet. Nothing was helping so finally he demanded tests be run to find out what was going on and it was found.

Thank you for making everyone here aware of this very preventable deadly disease. My brother-in-law died of complications that started from Esophageal Cancer. He did live 8 years after a successful surgery to remove most of the affected tissues.
