My journey as an EA/TEF survivor has been difficult, experimental, sad, and unknown. As I have taken a new turn in this strange journey there seems to be the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel to my understanding. I am becoming more aware that EA/TEF cannot be cured just managed. As I attended the 2nd Annual EA Conference in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, this past week, I learned a great deal more about this rare birth defect. The most important thing I realized after the conference, is that the world is taking notice in making great strides in bringing awareness to the forefront. My new journey is not to be cured personally, but to bring awareness of EA/TEF and hope that one day this birth defect will be no more. THIS IS MY WISH!
