My FIL was diagnosed with esophageal cancer a couple of months ago. He's 63. He has to endure the chemo-rad treatments (they end next week! YEAH!) and then have his stomach and lower end of his esophagus removed around Christmas (BOO!)

He's getting depressed right now and talking about just giving up.  We try to tell him that if he does his life will get worst for sure. But if he keeps going, get the surgery (which will suck!), his life will be better.

We gave him a "Cancer Sucks" hat when he began chemo. Luckily he didn't lose any of his hair! But he still got a good chuckle and said that the hat said everything that had to be said.

I'm looking for something similar in his "end of chemo" gift. Something that will make him smile, yet not paint a pretty picture over this terrible ordeal that he's going thru.

any suggestions? (I crochet and sew, and DH is an excellent artist)

You can do something like a t-shirt with "surgery! the worlds worst diet".

sorry I will have to think about this. I am glad he is coming to the end of his treatment, sorry he has to have surgery. Sad
