This is a photo of me getting chemo. I am

having a benifit chili dinner/ benifit auction

SAT. 17 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the

Legion Hall off Thomas Dr. in Cape Gir.

I was diagnosed in May with Stage II b , Pancreactic cancer, with metestized to the lymp nodes.

The WHIPPLE surgary was preformed in June and Chemo

started in Aug.. I'm half way thru and have 6 more

treatments (one every two weeks ) whitch as they keep

comming it gets worse with each one.

A fund has been set up at Peoples Bank in Jackson to

help pay medical bills since his wifes income is all

the income they have and the trips average 200 plus

with meds. and co-pays witch will increase since he is

loosing his medical insurance. May GOD Bless !
