Re: End stage and Ascites

Hello Rosie I have read your story with much sadness and my heart goes out to you and your family. I lost my beautiful daughter Gemma to pancreatic cancer at the age of only 27 and since then have only come across one other person the same age.

Re: Advanced pancreatic cancer - urgent advice please

Dear Louise I was so sorry to read about your sister's death and I totally understand your frustration and disbelief at the lack of awareness and funding for pancreatic cancer. I lost my 27 year old daughter last August after months of 'vagueness' and unexplained symptoms - it has shattered our fami...

Re: New to Board

Hello Its,

You will find this site hugely supportive and helpful and its fine to be a 'lurker' I am a bit of one myself - the good thing is that everyone is here when you need them.

Re: General Updates

Juliana I so hope you have a wonderful holiday. The problems you are encountering were similar to those of my daughter Gemma, with the portal vein blocked by a blood clot - it is such a nuisance as they cannot remove it and obviously the ascites then builds up so I fully understand your situation. I...

Re: Gemma - 8th August 2010

Hi Jeni

Thank you so much for your thoughts. I found Christmas and New Year unbelievably painful and now have to face a new year stretching ahead without my beautiful daughter in it.

Thank you again and I wish everyone on this site a very peaceful New Year.
