Pancreas Cancer Web


My father, the Reverend B.L. Hinchman, passed away on October 7, only 4 months after his diagnosis in Phoenix, Arizona. He was treated with 5FU, solely for palliative purposes, and that did, in fact, give him several reasonably comfortable months. He used those months to write a book about his life's work in Japan. The title, 'Making Brothers' says it all. Dad loved his Creator, his wife, his children and the people of Japan with all of his heart. He died the way he had lived - with graciousness, compassion, and great dignity. He eagerly anticipated his eternal home with his Heavenly Father, and at one point, awaking from a coma-like state, muttered 'Damn, I'm still here!' We were saddened by his passing, yet releived that he was finally pain free and home at last. His legacy continues in the hearts of his family, and in the churches and hearts of his Japanese 'brothers.'
