In Reply to: My mom is 43 and diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 9-12 months to live! posted by Jessica on August 08, 2000 at 21:57:59:
: Hello, My name is Jessica and we just found out a week ago that my 43 year old mother has pancreatic cancer. She was given 9-12 months to live. The doctor said that the tumor is wrapped around a major artery and it is going through blood vessels. They rerouted her intestines so that she can eat and go to the bathroom normaly. The tumor was pressing them so tight that she was having liver problems. If anyone has any remedies or any good stories I need to hear them. She is my mother and my best friend. I am 23 and I have 2 younger brothers, 9 and 7 who still don't know! I am having a really hard time dealing with this and I need your help. So please any info or great stories e-mail them to me directly at Richardnjess@aol.com I will check my e-mails daily. Thank You in advance for any help. Jessica
Jessica, I am so sorry to hear about your mom. There is one very good site, that people write in to tell their stories about cancer. You may find this very helpful. www.sharedexperience.org
My prayers are with you and your family... Ruth
