First, Thank You for serving! My husband was there 69-70. He had non-hodgkins lymphoma in 2001 and was declared clear from that cancer, by the VA, during the very same week we found out about the pancreatic cancer. He had chemo and radiation first, then a Whipple Procedure on July 14, '06 (his 56th birthday). It's been a very long and complicated recovery. How are you doing?

The US Department of Veterans Affairs has a site where you can look up Board of Appeals decisions. Search for Pancreatic Cancer, you'll find lots of cases. I have not found any that have compensated with the only cause as Pancreatic Cancer but if there were some on illnesses involved you may find a case similar to your situation. I'm trying to paste a link but I'm not sure if you'll get it.

My husband also died of pancreatic cancer in 06 he was a 100% disabled vet with type 2 diabetis. I also have applied for benefits and have been turned down. I am appealing also and have just recieved a letter stating that I have 30 days to submit any other evidence. I have done some reasearch and google diabetes with link to pancreatic cancer and found some things. I will submit these to the VA and Pray.
