Dear all, my 68 year old mum was given the devastating news on 12 September 2011 that she has the most common form of pancreatic cancer adenacarcinoma in the head of the pancreas . She has never been Ill in all her life , nothing more than a common cold took no medication and never drank or smoked in the last 28 years , ate a healthy diet and worked hard even into retirement because she liked her job so much . She is always happy the life and soul ! It's harder now though for her after the diagnosis . I guess I am searching for the answer why??? What did she do to deserve this or not do in her life style that could have triggered the cancer and why this particular area / organ of the body . I wondered if anyone else out there had asked the same question to there doctor or oncologist ? Both my sister and I are on the site , Delly and I'm Nessy ( those are our nick names) we both wish everyone fighting this terrible disease all the best and every good wish to all who have lost a loved one and those who are suffering with cancer . Any feedback is appreciated . Best wishes nessy x
