The family & friends of Marvin Siegel are uniting to raise money to help with the expenses for his fight against esophageal cancer!

On Friday June 27th, 2012 we were given the devasting news that Marvin had a tumor in his lower esophagus and the biopsies showed it was esophageal cancer. After many test it had been declared that he was already in stage 3 and the cancer had spread to the nearby lymph nodes. The tumor is too large to do surgery now, so on Thursday August 9, 2012 Marvin had surgery were they inserted a catheter for chemotherapy in an artery near his heart. He will be hooked up to chemo 24 hours a day for the next 8-12 weeks. For the next 28 days, Marvin will also be doing
radiation Monday-Friday. We are hoping that after chemo and radiation that the tumor has shrunk enough, if not killed most the cancer cells so he can have surgery to remove the tumor and nearby lymph nodes. Marvin has been having all of his test and treatments at Cedar Sinai hospital in Los Angelas. Since he has to be there everyday it is way too far for him to drive there and back home everyday and as a result he has to move out of his house and into an apartment next to the hospital. 3 days before we found out my dad had cancer, him & his fiance found out they were expecting a baby due in March. Marvin is
unable to work and the medical expenses along with living expenses and preparing for a new baby are far greater
than the disability he receives. Please support my dad in his battle with esophageal cancer!
