Jen,you are such a sweetheart~I have also found that people just "don't get it" when it comes to pc.I myself when I first found out could barely remember what the pancreas'function was~I had no idea that it wasn't curable~let alone the statistics of it! I think talking about death in any way makes most people uncomfortable~but, your getting the word out there,and thats sooooo important.A few days ago I was on the phone with a woman from the American Cancer Society...SHE did not know it was pc awareness month!!!!!! Can you believe it??? I was dumbfounded!I said I bet you knew last month was breast cancer awareness month though~I was asking her why so very little $$ goes towards pc, she had no idea..I was throwing things at her left and right leaving her no time to even answer me...I was having her mail me some literature, and do you know about 3 hrs later she called me back!!!! To apologize that she didn't have any answers for me...I thought that was very nice of her but I'll bet you that she thought about what I had said for the rest of the day!~got the word out to her! As for your Dad Jen...what about just a sweet loving for no reason card? And tell him how proud you are of him for taking such good care of mom or whatever you feel....??? If you lived closer i would say go give him a break..but you can't just "pop" in...those little things that touch our souls and mean more than anything in the world...Gail
