Pancreas Cancer Web


My dad is 62 years old and 6 weeks ago he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer,dad has been sick for about 2 years and has lost over 45 lbs.He had been told that he had male metapause to gallstones and one night he hemmoraged so bad he had to have a transfusion,they sent him home after that and for a week he wasted away before our eyes an still was told they did't know what was the matter.Our worst nightmare was the night we found out he had stage 2 pancreatic cancer and that is was unoperable,we are still getting the run around with starting his treatments.I'm writing this letter for someone to corrispond with during all this,I am so afraid of what the future holds and afraid of losing my dad.I need someone to give me words of hope, but also someone to help me see what to expect.
