Most patients with pancreatic cancer do not usually show signs or symptoms until they become Jaundice, and then they are already at a stage 4 where it's too late.
Written by Brian and Barbara Breberg

“I'm sorry Brian, but its cancer”. Not just any cancer, Pancreatic stage 2-Adenocarcinoma.The day was February 26, 2013, a day we would never forget. My wife Barb was with me and we held each other close and cried. “This is bad, she said”, “what are we going to do” I said. We need to pray and ask God to help lead and guide us and help get us through this. We didn't tell a single soul at the time because we wanted to tell our three daughters first so that they wouldn't hear it from anyone else. Finally they came home from school and we sat them down and told them. They were shocked and scared, and soon the tears rolled down their cheeks as they all hugged me tightly saying “Dad, we want you to fight this”.

Our oldest daughter Breanna said I need to live to see her graduate next year and see them grow up. I told them “I am going to beat this”. We all held hands and prayed again asking the Lord to help lead and guide us; and believing and trusting Him to get us through this as we tried to look at the positive fact that He already intervened and got me to the doctor in time.
