Throughout this whole cancer thing I’ve avoided posting the statistics. They’re really scary.
With my prognosis excellent it’s time to show how lucky I am.
Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers. 91% of pancreatic cancer patients will die within five years of diagnosis – only 9% will survive more than five years. 74% of patients die within the first year of diagnosis.
I am very, very, lucky. I’ll try not to forget.
