Help Mike O'Horo beat pancreatic cancer

From Mike O'Horo

The cost of surgery, chemo, radiation, temp housing, etc., is pay-as-you-go here in Mexico. Less than the US, but adding up fast. Whatever we raise but don't need, we'll give to someone in the same boat.

More Info

After an aborted attempt at the Whipple procedure, two post-surgery complications requiring additional surgery, then six weeks of chemo- and radiation therapy to shrink the tumor and create sufficient buffer space between tumor and artery to enable a 2nd Whipple attempt, it looks like we're lining up another Whipple. 

Here's hoping we can avoid the long list of complications that people report. Even without that, Whipple is radical surgery, removing quite a few pieces parts. Unfortunately, it's the only way to raise the odds of the cancer not coming back. Without it, even if the chemo/radiation regime reduced the tumor to zero, you can never know if there are rogue microscopic cells that could bring it back.

All factors considered and projected, it looks like the cost of this ordeal may have tripled.
