Hi Patti. I am very sorry about your friend. My Mother passed away in Oct, 3 1/2 months after her diagnosis of BDC. What kind of information are you looking for? I would suggest your friend going to a specialist in this area. My mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at a smaller hosptial while having surgery for gallstones and we insisted that she go see a specialist. We got her an appointment at MGH in Boston, with Dr.Hazel, and during her 2nd opinion was when we indeed found out it was BDC not pancreatic. Her doctor at MGH was wonderful and I would definitly seek out a second opinion here since your friend is in NH. Please let me know what kind of information you are looking for and I will try to answer as many of your questions as I can.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your friend.
