As an 8 year survivor of pancreatic cancer I'm so happy to finally hear that pancreatic cancer is in the spotlight more. More funding from the government has been great news, the prospect of a pancreatic cancer nurse through donations and many more things, big or small. Even in my small town there was a special night recently at the local pub dedicated to the cause. When I went through my surgery and chemo and then for nearly 6 years of regular testing I never met anyone or knew of anyone else going through the same cancer. Now with it being spoken about and hearing of other survivors as a result of it being put out there is such a positive thing.
Keep up the great work Pancare Foundation and the Avner Foundation also, and hi to all the other survivors who might read this.
A big congragulations Marg2!!
Well done on being in a position to post on here 8 years later!
There has been so many improvements in diagnosing and treating medical conditions, that sometimes it's hard to believe how much they have improved. Absolutely amazing.
I'm so glad that you're here to chat with us.
Which region are you from?
Hi sch, thank you for your reply and yes so much advancement has been seen over recent years and hopefully much more to come.
I live on the mid north coast of NSW, thanks again and all the best, it's great to be here!
Hi Fergie, thank you for your message and that's such great news about your 5 year mark!
Yes it's not always a death sentence thankfully, even those at first being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer it felt that way.
Good luck to you also, keep well now and into the future, Marg.
