Hello, 2 years ago I was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer and thank goodness the chemotherapy and radiation got rid of it but not before nearly killing me.

Got nearly 2 more years with my two boys aged 11 and 13. Thought it was over except for three monthly endoscopic tests.

That was until 20 March this year when I was told to have a pet scan. There they found the thing was back, bigger and meaner than ever, My tumour is in my oesophagus and of course they can do nothing.
