In early 2018, Bob noticed some increasing chest pain and difficulty swallowing. Various tests, etc., at Scripps San Diego eventually led to a diagnosis of Stage IIIa invasive adenocarcinoma - esophageal cancer. Bob began chemo/radiation treatment on March 1 for 5 weeks, with plans to remove the tumors via surgery in mid April.
This site will keep the progress updated, with journal entries by Bob, Brian (son), Stephen (son) maybe even Ayse. We really appreciate any and all words of support, encouragement, advice, prayers, positive thoughts and more!
