Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. 
Today January 18 2017 dad was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.  We are all still in shock and hurting so bad.  Dad has not been feeling well since Christmas break.  After going to his regular doctor and having an ultrasound that showed spots on his liver he was sent to meet with an oncologist. After further scans and a biopsy the oncologist diagnosed stage 4 pancreatic cancer that has spread to the liver.  Where do we go from here?????

The only option given to dad is chemo. We are past the operating and radiation stage. We hope to get blood work back to know if he can also start on a new trail drug.   This cancer is not curable but we all know that God can work miracles.   We just ask God  for strength and to help dads comfort level. Sorry this entry is very choppy but I am still trying to process it all. Lots of prayers for dad and the whole family. Thank you!
