I live with, and am carecargiver of my 93 year old mother. Even if I tell her of my dx not certain she would understand (?) Plus my brother died of esophageal cancer 20 yrs ago which just devistated her and she never forgets. So I cannot use the word cancer to her.. My only brother lives states away.

That whole story is to say how very thankful I am for all of your support!

Hopefully I can be as important to others.

  1. I am so sorry for your experience with your brother. A close friend of mine died recently of esophageal cancer as well. It's tragic. Please give your mother a big hug from me. Being a caregiver and a cancer patient is double duty. I hope to hear from you again with your progress. Indeed you are important! As you reach out, others with similar situations can relate. It makes a difference to us all. Thank you for being a part of our community.

    1. Your response is so valuable. Amazing how many have such similar experiences. Thanks for sharing!

        1. So happy you've found your way to this forum. When dealing with blood cancer and not sharing the path or what you're going through with those closest to you; It can be rough. God bless you mom and know you have a community with similarities and are open to listening. Virtual hugs : )
