But today, I need to ask a personal favor.
My little brother ( who’s bigger than me) recently was diagnosed with stage 3 Esophagus cancer. I have worked in the medical field for over 20 years. When I heard his test results and diagnosis, I broke down in tears. That’s why you all haven’t seen much of me lately. I am devastated, as I’m sure you understand. I KNOW how severe this type of cancer is.
His name is David. He has a large tumor in his throat. He was having pain when he swallowed anything, so he went to the doctor. After several tests and referrals, they finally found the tumor by running a tube with a camera on it down his throat.
He has just finished radiation and chemo. He feels sick and weak most of the time although he tries to continue to work. He manages an Xpress Oil, where he is out in the the heat all day. I don’t think he will be able to continue this much longer.
He has a grandchild to raise also, he loves her so much and can’t bear the thought of not being there for her in the future. I don’t know if you are familiar with Esophagus cancer, but it is really bad.
I ask everyone to please pray for him to be healed, Im not ready to lose my little brother. Plus, my mother will be devasted. She lost the love of her life several years ago and me and David are her only children. David is a wonderful man. He is kind, generous and funny. He is only 51.
Please read his story and help if you can. Thank you so much.
