Oh how sad. Such a young age. A complete inspiration though, something good will definately come out of his loss. X

Shockingly sad - just goes to show that you can associate things with the wrong cause?

They would never have thought he had pancreatic cancer, and he was so fit also.

It is a lovely story though.

I'm sorry but this story has left me feeling really angry at our health service.
Having experienced similar dismisals over several months, with my once fit and healthy husband.
I know not everyone they see has pc,but this was just guess work,(no mention of blood tests)
Whilst there is an increased risk in older people,more and more younger people are being overlooked or mis-diagnosed.The health profession needs to recognise this disease with a wider age range.
