        Hello All, Just wanted to let you know that it is with a heavy heart that Rich passed away on Friday, 10-10-14 after a 3 year 2 month battle with this horrible cancer.  He was surrounded by my 2 daughters, me and his puppy Malibu.  I truly believe that Rich won this fight, he took what was God's will and bravely fought to the very end.  He tried with all his might to inspire others to continue with th...

              Hi All,  Just a positive note that although Rich is hospice, he is home and is as comfortable as possible.  Yesterday we celebrated , he became a 3 year pancreatic cancer survivor!!  (stage 4- mets to liver, lung, and extensively throughout his bones) He was given 3-6 months to live,  It is in God's hands, always has been.  Keep fighting everyone !!  I pray for everyone on this site...

                  Thanks all for your encouraging words~  We are still fighting~  I do not want anyone who has doubt to think there is not hope~  WE STILL HAVE IT!  God will always find a way~  and it is HIS will that will be done.  Rich was able to go to the dr with our daughter Lynn (and her husband) who is due with our first grandchild in early January~  Although  it is usually to early to&nb...

                    Hi All, Just a quick update, Rich's body was unable to handle the cisplatin/gemzar-  it was the 7th line of treatment, his body said no.  According to our oncologist, any chemo would have the same effect and at this point the few of them left have a less than 10% chance of working and at that it would extend life perhaps 2 weeks.    Rich has decided to live his life to th...

                      Thanks Kathy, I am trying to encourage him, even more now, to continue to eat.  The VHC shakes are supplementing, and I can usually get him to eat at least dinner, and then a few snacks.  We did go outside yesterday to plant some tomato, bell pepper and zucchini plants.  It was sunny here so he was able to get some natural  vitamin D.  Go back on Wednesday for week 2, then off a week. &n...
