Linda, Michelle, Jennifer and Richard are coordinating the esophageal awareness event in memory of Scott E. Dye who passed away from stage IV Esophageal Cancer on December 13th, 2015. This is their story:
“It seems like just yesterday that we found out our father was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Our father went to the hospital for chest pain on November 13, 2015 and after the CAT scan was completed the doctors found a mass on his liver. That is when his primary doctor did more tests (endoscopy) and blood work. The results came back indicating esophageal cancer, Stage IV on November 30, 2015. Once the cancer was known there was nothing but vomiting, nausea and dehydration that came from it in the coming days and weeks. We were watching him quickly go downhill just days after he was diagnosed. During this time, a port was put in so that chemotherapy could start, and the goal was to FIGHT and beat this nightmare.
By December 9, 2015 he was transported back to the hospital due to a stomach hemorrhage. He was clinging to his life as his kidneys started to fail. Our father was placed in ICU and was too weak to start his chemotherapy. This was all happening too fast and we could not process that he was diagnosed with cancer let alone that he passed away on December 13, 2015, just a month after symptoms and a diagnosis was given. To see someone you love pass away in front of your eyes is the most unexplainable feeling you can have and you will remember it forever.
We wanted to find a way to help with funding and research. So, we have teamed up with The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation as a way to raise awareness and remember our father, and to help others become aware of symptoms and early detection of cancer.”
The event aims to raise awareness, encourage early detection, and fund research esophageal cancer..in hopes of a cure! See below for more event information and to register, click here.
