Welcome to our CaringBridge website for Dan Sobczynski.  As news of his cancer diagnosis spreads, we have been inundated with love from thoughtful family and friends far and wide. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to return every call, text, or message, but we are so grateful for your love and support. We are using this site to keep everyone updated in one place. 

Background: Dan started having stomach and digestive discomfort in June. When it didn't improve with diet changes, an upper GI endoscopy revealed a tumor at the base of his esophagus with a nearby ulcerated tumor in his stomach.  A biopsy has confirmed cancer cells in the esophagus, stomach sphincter, and stomach lining.  At this time, his diet has been highly restrictive to minimize discomfort and pain.

This week, Dan will have a PET scan followed by an endoscopic ultrasound next week to determine exactly what type and stage of cancer he will be fighting. We do not yet have a treatment plan identified and have been told he can likely anticipate some combination of chemotherapy to shrink the nodule prior to surgery.

We appreciate your support, prayers, and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting!
