hello ashley! what a wonderful and positive outlook you have!! i am wishing you and your family all the very best for this year, and to beat this awful disease!!!!

My mother was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just before christmas, I am absoloutely devastated not just because she is my mum but because before now i never even knew this awful thing existed! it has spread to her liver, lymph nodes and also made a lesion on her back :(( i am terrified of loosing my mum as am only 20, and dont have much family so it i cant even bare to think of life without her.

hopefully she is starting chemo soon! can you please be honest does it actually help? im phoning around everywhere to try and get her on trials or anything atall that can possibly save her! i also found out about this cyberknife thing in london which sounds amazing!! you should check it out.. if you could possibly give me any advice or some tips i would be so grateful.

thank you for listening take care.

Georgia Ewart.

I am sorry to hear abot your mum. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I am not opposed to conventional treatment but please don't discount Alternative Treatment. Read about them on internet and buy some abooks. Ged educated on alternative treatment. Talks to experts. Try one that is asafe and applicable in your mum's case.

Good Luck and best wishes.

Thank you everyone!! :)  I wish I wasn't in my 20s doing this, I consider anyone diagnosed older than 26 super lucky!!!! but I am still fighting over a year now so I am proud of that and had my best CA19 results yet on Monday during chemo! :)

Yes I believe chemo works.  I know if I hadn't received chemo, I'd be dead by now.  I know she is obviously much older than myself but there are different chemo options for everyone and if she takes to one well then it could have great benefits! Yes I know all about cyberknife but mine has spread to an extent that is not an option for obvous reasons  :)
