We are Striding in Honor of Bill Maletz 5/5/1962- 4/27/2016 Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This brutal, debilitating, painful disease stole My Dad and put him through many years of suffering, endless different doctors, specialists, procedures, scopes, stents, scans, hospital stays, many unneeded "guinea pig" surgeries (as my dad would say) including the LONG dreaded whipple. We were assured over and over that this wasn't cancer, leaving each time with multiple misdiagnosis, and my Dad mumbling under his breath that they didn't know what the heck they were talking about. He was right, as always. On April 27, 2016 at age 53, his long, painful, suffering 10 year battle that left him with his soul in a frail shell came to a end. We were contacted confirming what we had thought all along, the cause of death was indeed, Pancreatic Cancer.
