...Sharing Hope! I am 5+ year survivor, No Whipple, just chemo. Dx'ed in Nov. 2007 as having stage 4 PC. 6.5cm tumor in the head of the pancreas, and 8-12 lesions in the liver.

I have been NED 3 times, and I have had 3 recurrences. I have been on some type of chemo regimen all this time with just 2 chemo breaks of about 2 months each. I start back on Folfirinox Monday the 4th.

I have NOT surrendered to PC. I just got back from a week long mission trip to Honduras, where I helped build a cinderblock house and latrines high in the mountains. I have posted pictures on Facebook and will soon have pictures on my website (www.markbirch.org).

I have done so many thing in the past 5 years that I can't list them here. But they are all recorded in pictures on my web site... along with many friends and family. The reason for the web site is to show others that living with PC can be done. Many times patients don't want to talk to anyone about their PC, but they may go visit a website that has 'no conditions' attached.

There is also a prayer list page, and a guestbook. Please, feel free to send anyone you think might benefit from some uplifting stories and pictures and testimony.

God Bless,
