    This, being the second anniversary of my fathers untimely death from pancreatic cancer, I wanted to make a thread for the sake of awareness. It is probably one of the most disgusting cancers.

    My father went into the hospital with simple back pains a few days before Christmas, and he past away under Hospice care just four weeks later. The rate of progression and deterioration was ridiculous. Just 28 days from back pains to death.

    Cancer is a thief.

    It's an absolutely terrible disease. Pancreatic cancer is possibly the worst form as there is really no cure and it strikes so quickly and with almost immediate death.

    My wife's father died from this a few years before I met her. I'm disappointed I never got to meet him.

    My best friend was "stolen" by pancreatic cancer, 1 1/2 years ago.

    Although rather quick in dispatching the sufferer, not a pretty sight.

    My sympathies!
    I lost my dad to slow but insidious prostate cancer in August.

    I have a friend right now battling pancreatic cancer. He's had it for over a year and is doing pretty good, but he has had a lot of problems along the way. He knows that he's on borrowed time with it. It is a bad cancer, and survival is minimal. I wouldn't wish that one on anyone.
