    My father died of Pancreatic Cancer 10 years ago. He was already Stage 4 when we found out and died the following week. Its a strange disease and can creep up out of no where. Very deadly. Would this drug have helped my father. I seriously doubt it, but I hope it helps others. At least diagnose the disease earlier. If it in fact it can be.
