Pancreatic Cancer
Emotional Support, Cancer Treatments

My husband of 17 years is also my best friend. Tommy was diagnosed with Stage IIB pancreatic cancer on September 10, 2009 and had a Whipple on September 14th. He received chemo and radiation treatments and was doing well, then he began to develop a cough and a scan in December 2010 showed small nodules in both of his lungs. A needle biopsy was performed and it confirmed that the cancer had spread to his lungs. He's now been on Folfirinox treatments since June 2011. We're in this fight to win and Tommy remains positive and is continuing to enjoy his life. We've learned to appreciate every day that we have together and love to spend time with our family and friends.
