Member with Pancreatic Cancer

Hello fellow forum members,
I would like to let you know that I have been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in September of last year (2006), I started Chemo therapy on January 8th, 2007 after 27 weeks of Chemo treatments in Seattle, WA (about a two and a half hour drive from home here in Yakima, WA, I am told that the tumor is not shrinking and it is to close to a major blood vessel for surgery at this time. The surgeon has recommended Chemo/Radiation combo treatment that will consist of 3 different Chemo meds and radiation. The Chemo meds will be (1) a four hour infusion on Mondays, (2) an injection on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, (3) a pump that I will wear all week long that will pump the medicine into a port that is inserted under the skin just below my left collar bone, the Radiation treatments are Monday through Friday every day for about ten minutes. We will have to stay in Seattle for five weeks for these treatments at a hotel next to the hospital and that alone is costing us over $2,500 and my wife is taking a Family Medical leave from her work to be there for me, so we are also losing our income. If anyone would like to make a donation to help us through this, please click on the link to my website just below my name and on the home page is a link for donations. Also I would appreciate all prayers for me and my family.
Thank you for you time reading my post.

Cory,
I know this won't be easy for you, or your family. An upbeat, positive attitude can play a big part in your healing process, you're on the right track with the prayers. I will.
Keep us updated, you have a large potential support system here to go along with family and friends.
Dave

Cory,

I read this information while researching 65 GT's before I lost mine.

We are here to support you in your time of need. I wish I was able to do more than just donate to you as what you are going through can drain much more than money.

Prayers to you,

Steve

Steve,
Thanks, and I know about the drain physically, some days I only make it as far as my couch and don't even turn on my computer or log on to my fav website (here) I used to check in here 3 to 4 times a day. Again thank you.

Cory, do you have a PayPal account? We've had success with this route when one of us got run down on the road. Let us know what you need.
