To Share Hope. Raise Awareness. Inspire Vigilance. Help Extend Quality Life.
Quicken The Pace To An Eventual Cure
Treatment of cancer is not “one-size-fits-all”. Today personalized precision treatment is more targeted. Genetics, family history of cancer, gene mutations, and differing effectiveness of one’s own immune system. DNA is uniquely different. Exposing individual makers through testing enables oncologists to design customized treatments that may be more effective for a particular patients. And participating in clinical trials should be a consideration for many reasons.
Personal pancreatic cancer patient stories each are uniquely different. Many are initially misdiagnosed making second opinions absolute. Pancreatic cancer symptoms are very vague and often don’t present until the cancer has already spread. We must be vigilant. We have to become our own best healthcare advocates. We have to become more assertive with general practitioners. Many clues can be found in our patient stories that may give other patients newfound hope.
