Ron’s Story

Ron Perry

Ron PerryIn December 2014, Ron’s family doctor found a lump in his neck. After several weeks of tests, he was diagnosed with Lymphoma and began chemo treatments. The treatments were successful and the lump disappeared. Unfortunately, in December 2015, Ron struggled with tiredness and lack of appetite, similar to the symptoms he had with lymphoma. After a return to the MD, CT scan, and several tests, he was diagnosed with stage 3 unresectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma. Presently we know that there is a tumor at the head of the pancreas and it is inoperable because of its location on the artery. Thankfully, the cancer has not spread and is localized at the pancreas. We are hoping for positive results from chemotherapy but because he had lymphoma previously does not qualify for clinical trials.
