Bob's warriors!

Pancreatic cancer has a survival rate of 10%...that was just achieved in January 2020.  This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. 

Bob was diagnosed in April of 2018.  What started off as stomach aches and chest discomfort soon turned into a diagnosis that changed our lives forever.  Hearing the words 'pancreatic cancer' hit me like a wall; I can only image Bob's initial thoughts.  

Our 'normal' changed but his love of life did not.  He lived and did whatever he wanted to do.  But after not even a year with this awful disease, Bob passed away.  Bob passed away on March 16, 2019 .. just hours after his official retirement date.  Our lives were shattered and broken when Bob passed.

It was difficult to watch the one you love suffer with this terrible disease.  This disease needs to be stopped!
