Dear Friends and Family of the Fertigs,
You have been a pillar of strength and love to Todd, Michelle and their family through these initial weeks of this Fight. This Fight needs everything in our collective toolbox – the emotional, the psychological, the scientific, the epidemiological. In you we have access to the best minds and hearts in the world and what we have here is an amazing network of people and information. Many of you have sent Todd and Michelle such information and this has been and will be extremely valuable. They are receiving information every day from the doctors on their team at MSKCC. And of course they have been reading and processing a ton of information too. In order to help Todd and Michelle sift through all of this information while also allowing them to remain focused on the primary priority of getting Todd’s strength back to Fight, we have created a way to structure, research and prioritize information for their review. Below is a link to a web form for you to enter any information you may have on potential treatment options, experiences, care plans, diet plans etc. on Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer that could help.
Please feel free to enter anything you think may be useful -- this can be something you have personal experience with, know someone else who has experienced it and could help, read it online, in a book, heard it on NPR, heard it from your neighbor, saw a billboard - anything you think that may help. And please share widely and pass on the word like you have already been doing. We will, with your help go through and curate this list, add a second layer of research and follow-up with you or those you point us to and then prioritize for action.
Together, we will leave no stone unturned.
