It is now over six years since I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at Stanford hospital.

It is now over six years since I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at Stanford hospital. I lost over half of my pancreas during radiation. I am the longest surviving patient. No one else has yet lived over three years, although many are still alive. I owe it to Dr. Duckham's early diagnosis and continued care. He has seen me through two other cancers and weekly blood transfusions that were to have lasted the rest of my life. I am very grateful.
