Good Morning Everyone! Heading out to UCSD for the PurpleStride Car Parade to raise awareness and funds for Pancreatic Cancer. Some of you know my story - I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in 2014 when the fatality rate for this cancer was 94%. I have since had multiple recurrences for my metastatic (stage IV) and I’m in remission for the third time. Here is my story If you would like to learn more about me and/or support my campaign.

Hang in there, Robert and keep on giving it hell.  A small number of my friends are dealing with PC here on the East Coast and all fighting the good fight against a pretty heavy foe.  Good doctors and good treatment regimens are the key and you look like you're ahead of the curve.  Keep fighting, and you have my deepest respect and support.  And I wonder how many of those blown off hearts will be found along the I-5?

Just popping in to say hello to all 'ya all. Miss you guys. I had CT scans a few weeks ago and got the results from my oncologist yesterday and so far I'm still NED and there are no signs of progression. It's been almost 18 months since my last surgery (left lung lobectomy). As a matter of fact, I've been able to watch the metastatic progression in my scans through each re-occurrence (two times so far) which occur roughly every 18-24 months. But I'm lucky to have undergone surgery each time to resect (surgery is vary rare when cancer has metastasized). 18 month of no progression is pretty good. Which means the original clean up work done in my pancreas seven years and again 3.5 years ago looks like it worked. Hopefully I chased down the last of the tumors. We shall see. Have a great weekend all!

Ernie,

It’s been a while - time certainly flies. C does suck but cyclist treat it like it’s just another hill. I hope your recovery is uneventful. Sounds like we both know the secret to surviving. Pedal that old Wisconsin made Schwann and the others too. I bought a FS Enduro and recently a Gravel bike. I ride about 75  miles a week which is probably equivalent to 125 road miles. Heading out for a gravel ride through RSF and Lake Hodges  now and will roll through C&C on the way back.

-RD
