Since we're all doom and gloom already, one of my colleagues passed away from pancreatic cancer this weekend. Elvira Buban will be sorely missed.
A very non-forgiving cancer, sorry you lost a good friend.
which makes it all the more i.pressive that Alex Trabek seems to be doing so well.
That really is pretty amazing

Much appreciated. She was a most pleasant woman who was widowed about a decade ago by her husband's battle with the same ailment.

That's awfully coincidental.  Same form of cancer, that is.

Yep, both pancreatic. I didn't know her back then. She was only diagnosed 2 months ago.

Yeah, saw that.  Going the way of many long time Austin institutions.  Not high-end enough for that neighborhood any longer.

That's one of the other problems with pancreatic...mostly asymptomatic, so by the time you have something to complain about, you're in to stage 4.
