Our son, Anthony, was 3 months shy of his 19th birthday when he was diagnosed on April 19, 2007 with Stage 4 Esophageal Cancer. Due to Anthony’s age, we found many gaps in his treatment. While there were many support groups for Pediatric’s (as there should be), we found no emotional or financial support for Anthony’s age group. To summarize the gaps, I would have to begin with the fact that Anthony was told up front that he had only 9-12 months to live.
