Sad to report that pancreatic cancer claimed my brother in law's life early this morning.  Over the last 2 years he has cared for my mother in law.  She has Alzheimer and is 90 years old. Roger, my brother in law worked with mom to get her muscles toned and made sure she drank enough etc so that today she is in far better condition than 2 years ago when my father in law passed away.  They were in assisted living - which now I feel was no assistance at all.  Roger was a wonderful son and a good man . . .  His last words to me by phone were, "I love you too."  Our hearts are broken. . .

jb, the truth about pancreatic cancer is that there is no early detection. By the time the patient gets sick or is pain, it is already too late for any real extension of life.  Roger was sick for about a month when he went to the ER. Till then the doctor thought that he had an infection.  But when the pain got so bad that he had his wife take him to the hospital, the tumor had engulfed his pancreas, the lower half of his stomach and there were several tumors in his liver. Roger had put off going to the doctor because he had no health insurance - but it would not have made a difference - this thing moves like a wild fire, consuming everything in its path. You called it evil and I agree! Thank you for caring.
