Butter Side Up!

Ok so youíve been dealt a pretty crap hand, itís not fair, you donít deserve it but what do you do? I suppose there are many ways to deal with the hard knocks, everyone is different thank goodness but until this ordeal is over every time I drop it my toast landsÖ.

John, Jane, Lydia & Miriam Widdowson (Click pic to enlarge)

On the 3rd Feb 2009 I was diagnosed with cancer of the Oesophagus.


I am not a webmaster, doctor or† writer. Iím a husband to Jane and a father to Lydia and Miriam. I have a career to get back to and a mortgage to pay. Iím just trying to do something constructive to help get me and my family through this ordeal and keep all my family, friends and colleagues informed of how itís all going.


†If, at the same time, any new oesophageal cancer patients stumble across these few pages looking as I did, and still am, for information on either


Oesophageal Cancer or Oesophagectomy

then I hope the experiences, information and references youíll find here will help.
