Welcome to My Personal Page
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination.
Back in September 2017, my mom started noticing that she was having some kind of medical issue, so she went to her general practitioner to run some tests and to figure out what illness she may have. The doctor ran a bunch of tests and a month later, sent her to an oncologist due to some of her test results. The Oncologist scheduled her for a consultation, but immediately admitted her to the hospital for surgery due to the results and the size of the tumors that he could see from the ultrasound, etc. The doctors thought she had ovarian cancer, stage IV, due to how much the cancer had spread throughout the body, but pathology results indicated that she had pancreatic cancer, stage IV. When she had the surgery; she was in the hospital for 2 weeks due to complications with the extensive surgery. The oncologist prescribed a low-dose chemotherapy treatment plan. My mom had her last chemotherapy treatment mid-February 2018. Her immune system is really compromised. She just went to the doctor for a chest x-ray to see if the cancer has spread to the lungs, but the results came back clear, however, she still is sick. My daughter and I are participating in this walk to honor my mother and to raise awareness for this cause.
