  1. Hi Chris! My name is Liza Dier. I’m from Austin Texas and I recently moved to Grayslake, IL and my husband has pancreatic cancer. If you ever need to talk or if there is anything you need in Austin (my kids live there) please let me know.


  2. Hi Chris!
    Dave took part in a clinical trial, where some patients received immunotherapy. There was a 50/50 chance that he’d get picked for the injections. He was not. He received the standard therapy of Gemzar. 6 months of infusions. 3 weeks on and one week off. Now, he just goes every 3 months for check ups and CT scans every 6 months.
