July 9th 2017 our lives changed forever. My father, Bruce Semanchik, was diagnosed with a pancreatic tumor. We immediately went into fight mode. In a few short week we had appointments at both John Hopkins and Jefferson University hospitals. Within 6 weeks of diagnosis he was started on chemotherapy. His physical and mental strength helped him get through the grueling months of chemotherapy. He took his last chemo infusion January 28th. He then completed 5 weeks of radiation. He is scheduled for exploratory surgery (aka, to be determined at the time of the procedure) on May 24th at John Hopkins University Hospital.
