This is John starting and sharing with you a journal of my courageous wife's journey. By now all surely know that in January of 2016 Helen was diagnosed with stage 4 inoperable Pancreatic Cancer. With treatment starting at that time she was optimistically given six to nine months to live. She has fought so bravely from the very beginning that we recently defied all odds and marked twenty months since her initial diagnosis. She has been a trooper, a fighter, and an inspiration to all who know her. However the days are changing now, and we both know that the journey ahead will get tougher and tougher. It will be hard to timely update all the caring and interested people who have so faithfully and compassionately been with us on this journey..... so we hope this site helps. Please keep your prayers coming, they have definitely helped. Our love will always be with you. You all mean so much to us now, and have meant so much to us all our lives. Expressing our sincere thanks hardly seems enough.
