WILLIAM, MY DAD


My Dad William (Bill)60 yrs old was DX March 2009 with stage IV Pancreatic cancer. He received a biopsy in June 2009 as they had some indication his tumor may be operable. This turned out to be false hope. The Biopsy indicated the tumor was where they could not operate and uncovered several oter smaller tumors in the stomach lining. He began Genzar shortly after. He remained working as an OTR truck driver. The Genzar he received 7 treatments and then began filling with fluids in his abdomen around the very end of september 2009 they indicated his cancer count had tripled and this was not working. He was drained and was full again 4 days later. This is a continued problem to today. My mother is caring for 3 young children(my dads sisters children who they are guardians of ages 10, 12 and 13) and dealing with this as well and it is tough on her.
