In 2008, our family's lives were forever changed by a simple diagnosis: pancreatic cancer. What did this mean? How grim are the statistics?
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.
Jan bravely fought pancreatic cancer for 5 1/2 years. She was always ready for whatever treatment or protocol her doctors would recommend. She did not let her disease define her or tell her what she could or could not do. She was the face of determination against unfriendly odds. We stride in her memory so that more families do not have to experience the losses of their loved ones to this terrible cancer.
