Not much scares professional race car driver Kevin Kromer of Walnutport. But a diagnosis of esophageal cancer in 2016 did. “Your life just stops in front of you,” says Kromer, now 52.
Kromer could no longer swallow solid food, so he visited his primary care doctor to find out what was wrong. Next, he saw a gastroenterologist, from whom he learned he had a 9-centimeter, stage 3 tumor in his esophagus.
