I've been a 7 year member of this great discussion web site. Lately I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer.
I'm reaching out to members and friends to see if you can help out a long time member with a small donation to help pay the medical bills, hopefully find a research group with some good news regarding the deadly disease, and most importantly win the battle.
I'm also trying to save up for 2 trips to watch my daughters play for a national titles. One in Orlando for volleyballs and the other for a future soccer national in Germantown, Md.
Hopefully you can help:
My prayers and thoughts are with you in this most difficult time. Spend all the time you can with your family and "HE" will do the rest.
you're going through this. Our thoughts are with you.
~Angela & Jonathan
thanks for the prayers
For the last 12 months I have been experiencing pancreatic attacks. They have taken biopsies from the bottom, top and through the abdominal wall. Thankfully they all came back negative. 8 weeks ago I had a kidney, NETumor, 3 feet of intestine and a gall bladder removed.
Those of you who have never experienced pancreatic pain have no idea how devastating it can be.
I am truly sorry 'Gadget_man'. Take your meds and try to lessen the pain.
You will be in our prayers gadget_man .Through prayer and faith all things are possible.
Let our friend know you are there with him through this difficulty. Give him strength.
And may you, through this difficulty, be glorified in his life and also in ours.
We ask this in Jesus's name.
My prayers are with you Gadget man
Our prayers are with you Gadget man.
I'm so sorry to hear the news and wish you the best-
May God bless you when you turn to Him.
As with so many others, my prayers are with you.
Lord Jesus, we ask that you heal our friends that are sick. We ask this in Your Name.
I will keep you in my prayers brother and hopefully the Lord will heal you. God Bless you and your family during this tough situation
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during these difficult times.
You will be in our prayers
Hang in there. Stay strong.
... as those in our family have.
(Pancreatic Cancer has become a scourge of our era. I would urge all, regardless of gender or family genetic history, to become aware of its early warning symptoms).
Just bumping this thread to remind our friend Jorge we're thinking about him.
Thank You for the thoughts and prayers.
Thank you Don
Best wishes for a successful outcome.
How are you doing? Tell us about your days when you can. We would love for there to be ongoing posts for you to keep us up to date with you. Your days, thoughts, or just a hi.
Again prayes for you.
I am participating in the Purple Stride 5K in October.
Prayers to gadget_man.
I've been keeping up with our friend Jorge via http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/team-jorge/17354...
Our thoughts are still with you and your family.
Thank you Angela for renewing this post. It is easy to forget when we have the in and outs of our daily lives.
Our prayers are with Jorge and his family.
I just went and read the last few updates.
His journey on this earth is a tough one and our prayers are for him to get through this journey and have many more wonderful journeys ahead of him.
I'm sad to report that Jorge passed away on May 26th.
Here is a link to that information and it includes the still active link to his medical fund site if anyone would like to send a msg to his family.
Sad news. I don't see the link Angela.
Find peace and rest gadget_man. My thoughts are with your family.
Just lost my VERY VERY best friend , all my condonlences to all family
Rest in Peace
...of gadget_man's passing. My sympathies to his family.
Looking at his wife and family I am sure he had a wonderful life.
May peace be with them and GOD will help heal our sorrows with time.
And God speed.
My thoughts & prayers to Jorge and his family.
Rest in peace, my friend.
Rest in peace Jorge.
Descanse en paz mi hermano cubano.
May his family and friends remember him for all the good things he did to help others.
I lost my father-in-law to pancreatic cancer. We were all in Ocean City having a great time and on the drive home he started having severe pain.
Subsequent scans and diagnostic tests revealed that he was already in Stage 4. He was gone in less than 6 weeks, it was unbelievable.
Try to enjoy every day, you just never know.
You will be missed by many.
On an upbeat note, there is hope for others. About 5 years ago a close friend came back from a couple of months in the Rio Grande valley and looked jaundiced. Thinking he had gotten food poisoning and wasn't getting better he saw his doctor and after a number of tests was diagnosed with PC. Prepared for the worst but going forward with treatments in Dallas, they performed a Whipple and he was subsequently been deemed healthy, bought a new RV and with along with his wife takes bus tours across the country.
Jorge was young but for everyone, see a doctor at least annually, don't ignore any symptoms, get treatment early and keep your faith.
You've earned it.
Hope everything goes your way. Good Luck
gadget_man has died GeoC320.
This is what is so terrible about Pancreatic cancer. The vast majority of time there is no early warning.
I'm sure you are familiar with the late Ron Smith at WBAL
Very sorry for your loss.
