Ron’s Story

Site created on October 13, 2018

In late September of 2018, Ron was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer that has metastasized to his liver. With his family at his side, Ron immediately met with an oncologist and, without hesitating, decided to fight back with everything he has. 

This site will document his journey. ❤
