Pancreatic Cancer Hits One Family Hard


Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly cancers a person can get.  Today, only 6% of those diagnosed with the disease survive more than five years.  Unlike other cancers, the survival rate for pancreatic cancer hasn't improved in forty years.  Teresa Hogue and her husband Roy of Bend have lost too many friends and family members to this disease lately.  “We really need a lot more.  My husband I are just one family and we've had four people in our immediate circle of friends and family die from this disease in the last two years; with a very fast death rates, and we're just one family.”  Hogue will be among 500 advocates participating in "Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day"  in Washington, D.C. today and tomorrow.
