Katie’s Story

Hi everyone. We've created this site to keep friends and family updated about my dear husband, Kevin. Most of you know that we have recently found out that Kevin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer......and we are in for the fight of our lives! 

Visit often to read the latest journal entries, visit the photo gallery, and write us a note in our guestbook. I will be sure to keep you updated!  Many of you have asked if we need any help so I will also use this site to let you know if we need something.  But you can start now by praying for Kevin's healing and strength!

It all started with a little stomach pain in the fall of 2009.  Kevin went to the doctor to get it checked out through a routine endoscopy....they found nothing but a little inflammation and so went on to refer him for a CT scan and tell him to go off of a medication he was taking for cholesterol.  His pain seemed to resolve.

Well, shortly after the stomach pains came back intermittently and then more recently he started experiencing back pain to the point that he was being kept up at night.  So, like a good patient, he called the doctor back and went for a CT scan on April 22.  They found an unidentifiable mass on the pancreas and said it could be nothing but a cyst or worst case pancreatic cancer. Our worst fears were realized when we went back for more tests on Monday, April 26.  It came back as what we never expected it could be at Kevin's age and profile: Pancreatic Cancer.  

So, that is where your prayers come in!  We need them.  Kevin needs them.  Kevin is STRONG (and stubborn as you may know), has a great heart, a full faith in God and loves to live especially when life it involves his two beloved daughters, Stella and Evelyn.
So please stay updated and pray with us!
