As we start our battle
against esophageal cancer, I think we all suffered from a strong
feeling of aloneness. Yes, we have our family, but as much as
we know they love us, we still can't help feeling that they really
don't understand what we are going through. For those of us on
the Internet, it was the first place we turned after getting
the diagnosis of cancer. It was a very scary place!
Atlanta is a big town and it was inevitable that there would be other EC folks in this area. As we posted our stories on the EC list, we saw others from the local area and, of course, e-mails and telephone conversations started to take place. We gather monthly at a restaurant in Marietta for lunch for fun, conversation and mutual support.
I would like to use this section of the Dancing with the Dragon web site to share pictures and stories about our little band. I would also like to use it as an open invitation to anyone in the Atlanta area to please get in touch with us. You are not alone!
