Pancreas Cancer Web


My husband, Dale, is 41 yrs old. and was diagnosed with pc, mets to the liver 8/10/99. Surgery, nor radiation were options, only chemo. He has been on several different chemos: Taxol, cysplatin, Gemzar, 5fu, and now Rubitecan(and experimental drug). Each CT scan has shown continued tumor growth. Nausea/vomiting,pain and no appetite are biggest problem currently.I am Blair, Dale's wife and caregiver. We have 2 boys, 8 and 11 years. I am a school nurse by trade, but am taking a year off to care for Dale.
