Hi all! I have posted here a few times of my mom’s pancreatic cancer! She is my hero and warrior along with my dad, they are the sweetest couple and most amazing parents and have been through hell and back in their health through the years and they are rockstars!
Pancreatic cancer is a right b*** ( excuse my language) It is one of the worst cancers with the survival rates being only 5% percent past 2 years, becayse it goes virtually undetected, hard to diagnose, hard for chemo to work bcause it so deep and many times, unoperable, like my moms. Unfortunately, my moms tumor is wrapped around her pancreas and they cannot operate until they shrink it- shrinking it is the ultimate goal!!!Then surgery then recovery- i wont give up hope!
She was diagnosed last May/June and underwent chemo until Feb.March and then chemo was stoped because it no longer was working and her tumor kept growing bigger.
Then she went onto a clinical trial here at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto( one of the biggest cancer hospitals in Canada) and was on the clinical trial up until yesterday when they dropped her from the program- while her tumor didn’t shrink, it didnt grow considerably on the trial.
So now chemo is out and the clinical trial is out, and they found some fluid in abdomen and lungs- which they wil drain if it gets too much.
So everyone out there from wherever you are in the world, we, my family, NEED HELP!!!
We need some alternative treatment for my mom- we are NOT giving up on her! She is only 56, one of the lights of my life, the greatest woman I have ever known, my best friend along with my husband, and is perfect and amazing.
If anyone has any other alternative cancer treatments for her pancreatic cancer, please let me know! We are even considering doing some fundraising in town as some alternative treatments can cost $25,000-$100,000 and there would be lots of people willing to help here in my town so dont be afriad to post something that may cost money, as we will do whatever it takes and fight as hard as we can for my mom!
