I just want to tell all of you out there that there is hope. I am a 33 year old female that was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer stage 3 following a whipple operation. Its been 13 months and I feel great! No meds, a little pain from time to time but I feel like my life is back to normal. I invite you to read my story. I had the same type as the ceo of apple computers. A neuroendocrine tumor. Although apparently agressive in nature. We need to unite in a positive way as survivors of this horrible disease. Pan Can is doing a great job in raising awarness about pancreatic cancers and there is alot of reasearch going on now. But, unfortunatly it is still one of the most underfunded cancers. Please do what you can.Good luck to all of you. And as always your all in my prayers.

XO,
Jen
