GARYH


I was diagnosed with Islet Cell Cancer of the pancreas in September 1999 at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Surgery was performed to remove my spleen and correct internal bleeding issues associated with the tumor growth.The tumor(s) itself was inoperable. I am currently using morphine to control pain without chemotherapy or radiation. No other therapy is available at this time. I am enjoying each day I have left more than I though was possible.
