Pancreatic Cancer Survivor
I was diagnosed in 2010 at the age of 55 and under went the Whipple surgery in November 2010. After the surgery I underwent 12 months of Chemo, radiation and more Chemo. In 2010 the survival rate was 6%.
After two years of being cancer free I wanted to do something to help those going through treatment, mainly to give them hope and to let them know that they can make it through the riggers of the surgery and postoperative treatments.
I started volunteering with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (www.PanCAN.org) in 2012. I started to make quilts in 2016. I give quilts to those going though treatment mainly to let them know there are those of us who are out here who care, are raising funds for research and advocating for better treatment options.
Since I starting making quilts, I have been on TV, had my story in our local newspaper and my quilts have been displayed in several shows here in Virginia, Washington D.C. and North Carolina.
All proceeds from the sale of my items are donated to PanCAN.
