My Dad my Hero....has a rare cancer has 2 types of cancer at the same time

My dad was diagnosed 2 to 3 years ago by a regular colonoscopy, they found polyps, biopsied to discover it's cancer. After the procedure to take out the polyps in the colon, they discovered polyps on the pancreas.

To discover he had Pancreas and Colon that has not met, which is rare. Kaiser was dumbfounded and asked for the City of Hope to be the umbrella of his care.

He has been fighting with radiation at first then chemo repetitively. About 3 to 4 months back the oncologists Dr gave him false hope but by me working in the medical, I was skeptical. It took another Dr to tell my folks the cancer is everywhere which brought him into a deep depression and completely brought down his morale. This week in May 2019, a huge blow made me numb. He was hospitalized with bilat pneumonia being weak and pale. Yesterday, we met with the palliative care team and they transferred him home via ambulance. It's sad to see my dad so weak and cancer literally killing him.
