Last November, the dr. told me I had cancer. It was by far the scariest words I have ever heard. I was then sent to UAB where I had most of my esophagus removed and part of my stomach pulled up to meet the new esophagus. Was in the hospital for 28 days Came home and tube fed myself until 3 weeks ago, when the dr. gave me permission to eat and drink. I am still recovering from the extensive surgery and I ache, and feel sore, and experience lots of nausea.....But with all that being said, I AM ALIVE AND CANCER FREE. I have nothing to complain about. It touches my heart when I see people doing things to assist in cancer research. You have no idea what this means to those of us that have it, or have battled it, or who have lost loved ones from this horrible disease. A big THANK YOU to all have participated in making " Connie " . Great job everybody.
