2 years ago Brent began having back pain and was diagnosed with pancreatitis attack.  He saw many gastroenterologist doctors and had many scopes, scans and many more tests.  Nothing was ever resolved, unfortunately September  2018, when finally a cancerous tumor was found on his pancreas.  This then lead to many more test which determined it was stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He met with oncology and they decided a 3 weeks on of chemo and a week off was the best course of action.  His first chemo treatment was on October 2.  He responded well that day but as the days continued he started to sleep 22 out of 24 hours and then began to get a headache everyday.  On Monday October 8 oncology called Michelle and asked she take him into the ER.  They were worried about some of Brents symptoms.  He was soon brought to Abbott in acute renal failure.
