I may have mentioned this before on here, but one of my buddies has pancreatic cancer in his 20's. This was 30 years ago before technology is what it is today. I'm not sure what stage it was, but they ended up doing several exploratory surgeries and got it all. He's pushing 60 these days and all in all is in pretty good health aside from some sore feet. No cancer is good obviously, but pancreatic cancer is one of the worst from what I've seen. I'm sure at Bob's age its going to be a tough row to how, but hopefully he can give it hell.
