When Roxanne discovered she had pancreatic cancer she underwent genetic testing. She found she was a BRCA2 carrier, which influenced her post-treatment decisions about her health. Click on the link in our bio to read Roxanne's My Treatment story.
This afternoon we visited Mums grave. I never cried a lot through the time Mum was sick or since she has passed, I have never been one to get emotional (up until now) and today there were tears, I aloud my self to feel sad, sad for our loss, sad for my kids, sad for my family, my brother and sister and sad for Mum. Its amazing how much can change in a day, week, month and year. 12 months ago I could have never imagined mum would not be with us. Realising how precious life is, gives me the motivation and determination to make sure my time on this earth counts. We have one shot at this life and we deserve all the happiness in the world. 💕
Did you know May is National Cancer Research Awareness Month? We are so thankful for the researchers who spend countless hours in a lab seeking to unlock the mysteries of pancreatic cancer, the patients who participate in clinical trials, and the doctors who help their patients enroll in trials. You are making history by creating the future cancer treatments of tomorrow.
What my maternal uncle brought w/ his hand-s He told me he studied Russian language for a couple of yrs. I do remember he was happy about going to #ru over #us. US said NO, he moved on to un-discovred RU w/ his family. #pancreascancer kill-ed him as he #suffered w/o #dignity. His #death was horrible for me Same will happen to me too I was sad there is no more good man around me like him.
March is a very busy month for cancer awareness and let us not forget March is also Kidney Cancer Awareness Month.
