Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. Tom had surgery on March 16, 2016 at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto, CA, to remove a tumor on his pancreas. The surgery he had is called the "Classic Whipple" procedure. He has also begun chemotherapy, which will occur once a week, with a 30 min IV infusion of the drug "Gemzar" for 3 weeks, followed by a week off. This 3 weeks on, 1 week off cycle will be repeated for a period of 6 months. Thanks in advance for keeping in touch with us - although we may not be able to respond to each contact individually, all of your messages are read by us and greatly cherished!
