Pam: Tom also died of esophageal cancer that was found in 2009, he went thru various chemo and radiation treatments and then surgery in October of 2009. We thought he had beaten it but it came back as brain cancer in December of 2010 and he passed October 11, 2011. He was 62 years old when he died. He was also a Vietnam Vet . There are a couple of others here whose partners died of EC. You will be glad that you joined this site.
