  4. Oh my my, I can relate to this,My husband died almost 8years ago now of Esophageal Cancer.He was young only 46.I will surely pray for him and find a bell to ring.I really know what hes going through.My husband was diagnosed, he died 3 months later.As with this cancer, its usually at the end when you cannot swallow that you find you have a problem.As was the case with my husband.he also was a heavy smoker and tried quiting several times.So Barry God Bless and prayers are with you,I have a little bell on some jewelery,lol its rings softly but you know it can be heard.;)

  9. What a wonderful, supportive idea! Having walked with my mother down cancer's road for the past 10-months I know firsthand how much the support of others can encourage a weary traveler. May the bells resound!
