Pancreas Cancer Web


Hello My name is Shennon. My father in law 61yrs of age was diagnosed with PC early in September of 2002. He passed away march 15 2003. He had no symptoms at all. He went in for surgery in sep for herniea. The surgeon found a tumor in the lymph node in groin. It was found out that the tumor was the cause of the herniea. The cancer spread from the pancreas to the lymph. The doctor put him on a test drug with adition of gemzar. The doctor said no radition. He was robed of everything includeing his life. He lost so much weight that in the end it seemed like 1more pound would make him disapere.He was a tough but loving person. His main caregiver was his loving devoted wife of 14yrs. In the edition of hs wife his family and very close friends looked after him. He faught 100%+ right up to his last breath. His wife was by his side when he passed at 8:45am. We all miss him so much. GOD BLESS REST IN PEACE. PRAY FOR A CURE.
