Pancreatic Cancer Action Network




Dear Pancreatic Cancer Action Network supporters:

My pancreatic cancer journey began in August of 2008 when I felt lethargic during a family camping trip. The next week, I went to lunch with a coworker who told me I looked jaundiced. Sure enough, when I looked at the whites of my eyes in the mirror, they were yellow. On the evening of September 2, I visited my local walk-in health care clinic. A battery of tests confirmed I had a mass on my pancreas.
