Welcome family and friends,
We will be using this platform to keep everyone updated on what's going on with Billy.
In February, after months of difficulty swallowing, he was diagnosed with stage 3 Adenocarcinoma of the esophageal junction ( cancer in his esophagus at the stomach). He has completed 6 rounds of chemo and 6 weeks of radiation and still somehow managed to come out with his hair! It’s a bit thinner but still there.
The next step is the removal of the tumor and reconstructive surgery to replace and repair his esophagus. In technical terms, the Ivor Lewis Oesophagectomy.
Our family would greatly appreciate your prayers and support as we start this next phase of treatment on Friday, August 10th. We will keep you updated when we can.
Thank you to all who have prayed and supported us through this challenging time thus far.
We are deeply touched by the outpouring of love and prayers.
