I am 55 years old and a lot of my free time is spent acquiring cars, fixing them up, and moving on to the next one—that is, when I’m not working in my own auto body shop for my day job. My work is a big part of my life and I’m not yet ready to give it up, which is why when I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, I wasn’t sure what to think.

When I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, I didn't know what my future held. But, after beating cancer, I was inspired to enjoy my life to the fullest. For me, that meant becoming an Elvis Presley tribute artist and giving back through the power of music.

For many years I’ve loved the Philadelphia Flower Show, with its stunning displays and arrangements. I always look forward to it, even though I move through the crowded space very slowly, because I had a double knee replacement several years ago.

I started feeling stomach pain during the Christmas season of 2014, but I felt sure it was related to heartburn. By New Year’s, however, I had developed changes in my urine and bowel movements. When I started researching my symptoms online, I saw that pancreatic cancer matched my symptoms. I quickly scheduled an appointment with my primary care doctor, who had previously scheduled blood work for me.

"We heard the words 'pancreas' and 'cancer', and it frightened us. After some online research and much discussion with my children, Andrew, Diane, Anthony, and Denise, it was agreed that I seek the best possible cancer care at Fox Chase. "
