I just found out that my triplet sister has pancreatic cancer one month ago. It is in her pancreas, liver and some part of her lungs. Stage 4. She is a fighter and is on gemstar and oxiplatin. She had a hard time keeping food down and had to wait an extra week for chemo. We remain hopefull that chemo will help her for a while. In the meantime, I need advice on helping her create a personal video for her girls of 16 and 17 years of age. Does anyone know of a script or info on this? This is my gift to her.

Hi triplet!
I can't help you with the question you had, but can tell you that gemzar (by Lilly, right?) was a very easy chemo for me. Very few side effects and no nausia.
I wish you and your sisters well. I think you are one sweet lady.
