On December 13, 2017 we received the devastating news that Bonnie Wyzgala had pancreatic cancer which had already metastasized in the liver. We were told she might have 12 months and to “begin making new memories”. We were blessed with many friends and family visiting every week to lift her spirits and show their love and support. On May 4, 2018, less than 6 months from the diagnosis, Bonnie lost her hard fought battle.
In the last 4 years, I have known or heard of many more people who lost their battle to this disease. I learned during this time it is one of the most difficult to diagnose. With all her testing in 2017 we were told twice she did not have pancreatic cancer; it was not found until it was too late. We have to do better for everyone out there in finding ways to better diagnose and treat.
