I am BRCA1 and BRCA2 positive, meaning I have mutations in those two genes that make me more susceptible to cancer. When I was 67 years old, I was diagnosed with pancreatic and anal cancer in the same year.

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.
