The following is the last letter I wrote to my dad. I wrote it after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He passed away due to complications from the pancreatic cancer surgery a few months later.
The reason I wrote a letter instead of talking with him is because, knowing him as I did, I knew he would be resistant and defensive, and I would never get out all the information I felt could help him. I am sharing this letter in the hopes that it may help someone else who is having issues with their pancreas, knows someone who does or recognizes the characteristics and can prevent this outcome.
