I am a pancreatic cancer survivor. I was diagnosed, (at age 56), and operated on in November 2000. They removed 40% of my pancreas, my entire spleen, a slice of my kidney, and 5 lymph nodes. Fortunately for me the cancer only spread to the first lymph node...the others were clear. After surgery...I had 24 hour infusion of chemo, (5fu), for 5 weeks, and radiation 5 days a week during the same 5 weeks. It was devastating!! The second go around of chemo was gemzar for 9 weeks...one day a week. My last chemo treatment was May 29, 2001. I continue to have blood work done every 90 days, and cat scans are done every 6 months. It has been 3 years/ 9 months, and I continue to be cancer free. YES...pancreatic cancer can be cured!!!! Tell your husband to fight this horrible disease as hard as he can...and to keep the faith. Russ

You give those with this devastating disease hope.  My husband was diagnosed last September 2017.  He is receiving Gemzar 3 weeks out of a month and is to receive it for 6 months and radiation there after.  His blood counts have been two low to receive it twice now since Oct 31, when he started. He did have the Whipple procedure.  Cancer had entered 6 out of 16 nodes examined but did not invade any other organ. We keep reading incase there is more that can be done and praying
