Doug, I'm so glad you found us at EmpowHer.

Way to go for those first 15 1/2 months! I'm glad to hear you're fighting like hell.

Here's a link to the site Doug is talking about:


That is the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, and it is a large and very well-organized site. There is information for patients, for doctors, for researchers and for caregivers. There are Congressional updates, event listings and a calendar. There is information about volunteering, about fundraising and a link to their store, where you can buy awareness T-shirts and baseball caps and so on. You can also buy Professor Randy Pausch's book, "The Last Lecture." He is the professor who became so popular on YouTube and Oprah (with Dr. Oz) as he battled pancreatic cancer.

And there are also awareness bracelets, which are purple (like the yellow Livestrong bracelets or the pink bracelets for breast cancer research). You can help spread the word just by wearing one.

Here's a link on how to get the word to your senator or representative:


Take care, Doug, and thanks for writing. Here's to another 15 1/2 months and beyond.
