Pancreas Cancer Web


My beautiful was 85 when she was diagnosed with PC. She lived a full and healthy life. She was losing weight fast and just seemed to have no energy, on June 5, 2008 she checked into the hospital for weakness. Within 5 days they diagnosed her with pancreatic cancer(60 days max). They sent her home with hospice. She did have a little discomfort the first few days but seened to be feeling ok. Never did regain her strength. Because of her age and her own wishes nothing special was done. She started sweeling, diarhhea and nausea on the 27th of June and by Monday, the 30th she was gone. I am thankful it all went fast for her, however, I miss her everyday and am so sad she didn't have the opportunity for treatment.
