Pancreas Cancer Web


My mother passed away from pancreatic cancer on nov.22,2002 at the age of 63. She was diagnosed in Aug.2002 in advanced stages with it already spread to her liver. She was gone so quickly that it made all of our heads spin and what she went through i would not wish upon anyone. I personally feel that she could have been diagnosed alot earlier since her abdominal pain went untreated for 1 whole year and she had already had 1 ultrasound at that time. Cancer is a n ugly disease that seems to be more prominant these days more than ever. let's fight this ugly disease.
