So much about this deadly cancer is unknown. Before December 2015, we were like the average American family. We knew nothing about pancreatic cancer or its symptoms. What most people don't realize is that this cancer has no early detection methods. When it's discovered, it's almost always too late. This was the case with our dear mother, Barbara "Bobby" Powell. God gave us five months to love and care for her. The cancer was too aggressive and God called her to her heavenly home on May 10, 2016. This cover picture is mom standing underneath a picture of two angels. The picture was taken as she was leaving the hospital after a 30-day stay. Mom had my niece take the picture. She told her the picture depicts how she wants God's angels to carry her to heaven. I have no doubt that she is in heaven. Sharing this makes me both happy and sad. She is why I'm so passionate in my efforts to rewrite the future of pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer patients deserve better. That's why is so important for us to fight to advance medical research, to determine early detection methods and increase the survival rate.
