I am so heartbroken. I hope someone out there can give me some hope. My 46-year-old brother was having some gastric symptoms and abdominal pain for several months. The pain became greater just before Xmas. He had a CT scan done which showed a 4-cm mass in his pancreas. Biopsy proved it was positive. He has to meet with a surgeon next week to see if it's operable and will probably have more tests done to determine the staging and status. He has 3 young children and was in the middle of the separation from his wife of 13 years who was leaving him for another man. She has now decided to put things on hold and stick by my brother and is pretty distraught over this. He has been on such an awful rollercoaster ride since first finding out about his wife's affair and now this recent cancer dx. How can one person be confronted with such a terrible chain of events. It seems so unfair, but I am trying to keep my faith that he will be helped and treated and that perhaps can live a long life if treatment and surgery is possible. The situation with his wife is awkward for the whole family since we have been estranged from her but now have to stick together to help him through this. We are putting past issues and feelings aside. I just hope and pray that his cancer is not advanced and that it can be treated. God works in strange ways. Maybe things will turn out good in the end with his diagnosis and his marriage. I NEVER stop believing. Any feedback/comments/thoughts would be greatly appreciated. My family is suffering deeply from all of this.
