I've never been one to run from a challenge - Patrick Swayze
Even when diagnosed early, there is still no cure for pancreatic cancer. It typically spreads quickly to other organs, especially the liver and is seldom detected in its early stages, which is the major reason it's one of the hardest cancers to treat.
Everyone has come to realize that a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is grim what with many well known people succumbing to this condition including recently Steve Jobs, Patrick Swayze and in the past Michael Landon and Steve McQueen, to name a few.
Maybe someday there will be a screening test...who knows it could be an Apple app!
