Welcome to My Personal Page
As some of you know, my dad, Brian Geise, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer just over 6 years ago. He was diagnosed in October of 2011 and passed in May of 2012, just 7 months later; unfortunately, this is the quite normal with pancreatic cancer. In July of 2017, Patti Sprenkle, a friend and coworker of the diagnostic Imaging team at Carroll Hospital lost her battle with pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in both men and women in the US, but it is projected to be the 2nd leading cause by the year 2020. In 2018 it is estimated that 55,440 people in the US will be diagnosed and over 44,330 will die of this disease. *
