Pancreas Cancer Web

SILVANO, my Dad, update

My Dad, Silvano, lost his courageous battle with pancreatic cancer November 30. 2000. I am so proud of him for the way he handled himself with this devastating disease! I feel blessed to have been present and holding his hand talking to him as he died peacefully.I got to thank him for being my father & that's the only good part for me in knowing he was dying. Otherwise, I'm sill having traumatic flashbacks of his illness that time will heal. If anyone is interested on advice, now that I have experienced the complete path of this horrific disease, please feel free to email me. If you are 1st diagnosed, please don't jump into standard radiation/chemotherapy, know there are alternatives out there for you so your whole body doesn't get depleted trying to kill the tumor. Best Wishes to all affected...
