Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer
On January 11th, 2017 I was out doing a little pre-birthday celebration with some friends. My Mom kept calling over and over again. Typical of my Mom, she's always been persistent (I wonder where I get it). She would call me 12 times just to say hello. I finally picked up the phone and went into the bathroom to talk to her. The news that she delivered was devastating. Pancreatic cancer! In a few days, after the initial shock wore off, I spent hours researching every possible treatment and outcome. The realization that this was more than likely a quick death sentence was overwhelming. Well it is almost a year later and my Mom is still here! Many of you were there that night with me and others have met my Mom over the course of the past year. Some of you have known my Mom for years and other's for her entire life. She is a fighter! My Step-Dad and I are fighting with her. Her battle is our battle! We must find a cure!
