Welcome to My Personal Page

It is hard to believe that 16 years ago on November 26, 2005 I was in the ER, when I was told I had a tumor on the pancreas. Most of you have heard my story by now.  The first year I was treated with various radiation and chemo only to find out after a year that the cell type was misdiagnosed.  I then had additional chemo for the correct cell type. In October of 2007, I went to Houston Texas and had a by-pass of the vein as well as the required resection of the tumor and associated "Whipple" surgery. It ended up being a two day surgery due to complications. I was then unconscious for an additional 8 days, and spent a total of 50 days in the hospital.  I am continuing to undergo treatment.  

I would like to thank my wife Nancy, the love of my life, and my two extraordinary daughters Bethany and Marla,. I never could have made this journey without the three of them. Thanks to their guys Charlie and Zach, and thanks to my brother Ron, and all of my family and friends who have always been there for me,

Your donation will help fund research ,provide support for patients and caregivers, and most importantly create hope!  PanCAN has a number of important new initiatives that need to be funded.

Please join us on April 30, 2022

As always I thank you for your support and friendship.
