Cruiser contracted lymphoma in late 2010. Although the chemo put the lymphoma into complete remission, the side effects, or perhaps a combination of the lymphoma and the chemo, caused a "rare" condition called megasophagus. The esophagus is supposed to narrow as it reaches the stomach so food stays down, but in this situation the esophagus widens making it very difficult to keep anything down. Despite all efforts to help him retain his food, Cruiser began refusing to eat.
