I've corresponding via Email with several of you and I've seen the support on your site. It's no secret now that my Mom is officially one of the 28K this year. I have to admit, it's the first time since college biology that I have even thought about the pancreas. I also have a distant cousin on my Dad's side that is also suffering from this. Something tells me those 28K stats per year can't be correct. In any case, I, like any other new hostage to this disease, am looking for support and information. I hope you will afford me an opportunity to join you here. I'm scared and lost. I hope I can be as strong for my Mother as most of you here have been. I too have a couple of questions and it's only today that I've even had the nerve to think them aloud. 1st: Once this disease enters the liver, what is the average life span and 2nd: What are the nuts and bolts of this horrible disease --- how does it eventually...what happens to the person suffering when it comes time to pass...or HOW does it cause them to go....What does it do to the body? This is so difficult and maybe it's not something I really want to know, but something that I need to understand. Before being diagnosed, I prayed that we were one of the 10% not malignant. Then I prayed for a miracle and I'm still praying for one, but now, I pray for good quality of life free from pain for my Momma and that God will grant my family the peace and wisdom to handle this while maintaining at least an ounce of sanity!
