Re: How much longer will he suffer.

Thank you all. Just to inform you all that I've had excellent support from EUROPAC through the University of Liverpool who have taken my fears for hereditary/genetic PC serious. My grandmother (paternal), great uncle (paternal) and my dad all died from this terrible disease. None of my GP's have given us any advice on this and through my own research along with my dad's persistence to research familial PC, we have been registered with EUROPAC for screening. I didn't want to acknowledge this whilst my father was alive, but he made me promise that I would look into it as he didn't want me or my children to suffer. If anyone is concerned with this issue I strongly advise you to contact EUROPAC as they have been excellent. My dad's wish was that all donations from the funeral (rather than flowers) go to this research programme.

You have done everything your Dad needed and wanted and his peaceful death at home amongst his loved ones is a tribute to your care and compassion.

My sincere condolences on your loss.

Love and Peace

Mike

So sorry to hear about your dad, but pleased he was where he wanted to be with his family present.

You are to mention EUROPAC. We looked into this as my husbands father also died of cancer but unfortunately the primary site was unknown so my children are not eligible.

Wishing you strength for the coming days.

I was so sorry to hear about you Dad. My dad was diagnosed with inoperable PC at the beginning of January 2014.
Thinking about you and your family at this very sad time

Hi there,

So sorry to hear about the passing of your dad so soon after you first wrote about him.
It is good to hear that he was able to be at home, and have his wish granted, and that you had excellent care from your hospital. This is so good to hear, as often, the opposite is true, so it is encouraging to others that you have had some good experiences.

Our deepest sympathies go out to you and your family at this sad time.

Also, great to hear of your positive feedback about Europac also. We do refer many people there and we know that the research they are conducting is very important for the future understanding of pancreatic cancer.

Kind regards,
Jeni, Support Team.

Overwhelmed by your kindness. Thank you. I will use this site for years to come and hope sometime in the future I can repay the kindness to somebody in need. My deepest thoughts are with you who are suffering currently through personal PC or witnessing a loved one suffer. Xxxxxx
