I fully understand how you are feeling. I lost my Dad to PC in 1978 and my Mom in 1997. It's aweful to see someone you love go through the pain and helplessness the first time, but having a second parent come down with the exact same "very rare" disease is almost unbearable. I went to see a gastroentorologist today for some tests. When she saw my family history she insisted on referring me for a CTscan if for no other reason ( hopefully) as a baseline. I was surprised that she wanted me to do this as my regular doctor had nixed it when I suggested it. However, I have a lot of confidence in her because as we talked she was quite surprised to here about panCAN and asked me to get her some information about the organization and she also told me that she had sent two patients to JHU for Whipples. I was impressed that she did not refer the patients to a local doctor. Hang in there. Life is not always fair. Everyday I hope and pray for a cure so that no one else has to suffer. I will keep your dad in my prayers. Jacki
