“In May, my brother in law, aged just 48, was diagnosed with cancer of the Gastroesophageal junction, it is T4. He has had so many scans just to get to this point and a few weeks ago he had a JEJ feed tube fitted as eating and swallowing has been restricted. He will be starting his 4 cycles of FLOT chemotherapy next week. If the tumour responds to this, he will then undergo gruelling surgery to remove the junction of the oesophagus and all of his stomach, to hopefully remove all the cancer. Then after this a short break before more chemotherapy to mop up any other cancerous cells that may have been left behind. The OPA cancer charity offers information and help to people and families going through this journey. Shaving my head is the least I can do to raise some vital funds, please support me on our family journey.” – Tina Saxton via Just Giving.
