I am 41 year old, married with 3 girls. I was diagnosised with PC late August of 98. On labor day weekend I had a whipple performed at Hartfor d Hospital. My surgeon was able to take out the entire tumor. From October through December I was given radiation and chemo and continued 5 FU chemo treatments untill early April. So far so good, I had a cat Scan done early May and had no sign of cancer. Most days I go on living my life with a very positive outlook...once in a while it gets tough thinking about how my life has been turned upside down. A very positive thing that has come out of this is developing a complete appreciation for life and the people I share it with.
