January 1, 2019 Tom was diagnosed with pancreatic and liver cancer on December 12 after about a month of doctors' visits and tests. A week later we left for a week's visit with our kids and their families and other family and friends in Dallas for Christmas. While we were there, we were able to get in to see a highly-rated oncologist who discussed options and assured us that we would receive the same treatment here and that we didn't need to go elsewhere for treatment. Yesterday (December 31, 2018) we went to see Dr. Fahed here, who discussed options with us. Tom will have a port inserted soon by Dr. Anderson and will begin treatment every other week.
