Hola, In October 2007 at age 37 I found out I had a tumor in the pancreas. After several tests and 2 months after I went into surgery. 12/21/2007 Friday is the date when I had the whipple. My doctor told me I had two tumors one 5 cms sitting the pancreas body and another one 0.5 cm in the pancreas neck. The smallest one was cancerous but it was so small that no chemo or radiation was needed.

The diagnosis was a neuroendocrine tumor. It has been almost four years :) I’m thankful each morning I wake up, I enjoy every moment in my life. If you’re on this journey, you have to stay positive and faithful, try to eat healthy and be active. Be hopeful that one day the cure will be found!!
