Mary, thank you so very much for your response. I can only say that this web site and the people on it are just incredible. I hope that I can get this info through to my friends as it seems that they are just frozen in time or are just ready to accept. I thank you and wonder if you or anyone reading this knows how to pierce the denial stage or if in the case of this cancer I should just let it go? I would e-mail you but I am afraid of viruses and when I open I can't just scan thru the messages and this is my friend's address as I live in Mexico. Again, thank you and please forward any info as I will be going to Los Angeles for the first chemo next week???? Should chemo be administered when life expectency is so short and with life expectency so short would the whipple procedure be just another painful experience??? Thank you, Kathleen
