LISA STANCIK [Eve Stancik]


I am the daughter of EVE STANCIK who was diagnosed with pc [stage IV] in June '98. Her only symptom was nausea which later turned into jaundice. She lost her battle on August 29, 1998. Eve was 72, born Christmas Eve - thus the name Eve. Whipple surgery was considered too risky. Doctors [Bayshore Hospital NJ] performed bipasses to re-route food, drain bile etc. Unfortunately we never experienced 100% success. Despite her body failure, her spirit to fight remained strong as did her faith. We started an endowment at Johns Hopkins for pc research in her name. Because this is just a dent in what's needed to further progress I will also be an active member in gaining funding [both tax money and private] toward research. Have already enjoyed the people I have met who are fighting this disease or who have lost loved ones to it. I am your sister and friend in this journey and look forward to celebrating the many lives we will save as action moves forward to head out this beastly disease. As for my personal bio: Live in Olney, MD, work for the government as a TV Producer/Director in international broadcasting. A lot of my free time is spent caring for spiritual lives at a local church where I am an ordained minister. My e-mail: LStancik @usia.gov or runtherace@erols.com
