ELIZABETH


My father was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in May of 1998. He received a Whipple in June of that year and went through many types of radiation and chemotherapy. In September of 1999, he became extremely sick and I withdrew from my sophomore year in college at James Madison University to go home and be with him. My large family spent his last month on this earth holding his hand, in the room with him the entire time. My father was a wonderful man, and it was so difficult to see him go through such a horrible experience. I was born in 1980, so at the time I was only 19 years old, which made it even harder. My father died at the age of 60 on October 28, 1999 in our home in Alexandria, Virginia.
