Esophageal cancer is cancer that develops in the esophagus, the muscular tube that connects the throat to the stomach. The esophagus, located just behind the trachea, is about 10 to 13 inches in length and allows food to enter the stomach for digestion. The wall of the esophagus is made up of several layers and cancers generally start from the inner layer and grow out.Inspired by the memory of her father who passed away from esophageal cancer, this year’s event featured delicious cuisine in the equally refreshing outdoor ambiance at Pointe Orlando . The Taste of Pointe Orlando included unlimited food samplings from some of the venue’s award-winning restaurants; B.B. Kings Blues Club, Ben & Jerry’s, Copper Canyon Grill, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar, Funky Monkey Wine Company, Maggiano’s Little Italy, Pizzeria Valdiano, Taverna Opa, The Pub Orlando, and Tommy Bahama’s Restaurant & Bar.
