In November of 2013, I dodged a deadly bullet because my doctor referred me for a CT Scan unrelated to my pancreas. Precancerous cysts were discovered, resulting in removal of 70% of my pancreas. I am fine, but I got lucky.
One of the reasons that pancreatic cancer is such a challenging disease is that it is frequently not diagnosed until the cancer has reached more advanced, aggressive stages. While progress is being made, currently there is no standard diagnostic test for early detection and prevention of pancreatic cancer.
I am walking on Saturday, November 12th to raise money to support research for the development of a standard diagnostic test.
