I am 41 years old and the mother of four children. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2005 (the same rare kind as Steve Jobs.) It was a devastating diagnosis as I had a 2 year old and a 6 month old at the time. I had a Whipple procedure within weeks of the diagnosis and had a subsequent surgery due to complications. It was a mix of emotions to find out that it was a very rare type of pancreatic cancer. My husband and I were blessed to go on to have identical twin girls three years after my diagnosis. I had laparoscopic surgery to remove a few spots from my liver in April of 2011. I am very confident that with my vigilant follow up protocol, there will be early detection so that I can fight this disease for 50 more years in honor and memory of all those who have lost their battle.
