My Story

Hello everyone. We just want to share some of Jody's story and have an avenue for friends and family from all over to share thoughts, feelings and prayers. We all appreciate your support. Jody is safely home and comfortable and keeping up her spirits by bossing her family around.

Jody was unfortunately diagnosed with pancreatic cancer almost 4 and 1/2 years ago. She has been fighting it with amazing bravery and dignity. Recently we found out that her disease has spread and unfortunately there are not any treatments available for her. She continues to keep her chin up and is a source of strength for all her friends and family who are all heart broken by the news. She is now home and has been resting comfortably. She would love to hear from all of you on this website. All of your support is needed and eagerly anticipated. Thanks, the Duff clan.
