She’s Like a Wind by Patrick Swayze (AMV)

September 14, 2009

Pancreatic cancer has a very poor prognosis and difficult diagnosis, often detected only at later stages of the disease. Steve Jobs is a notable exception because he has a very rare (1%) islet cell carcinoma.

One of the main challenges facing cancer researchers today is to identify novel biomarkers and develop non-invasive screening tests to detect cancer early.

  1. Pancreatic cancer is a hard disease to treat. Lately there has been word of a virus present in some cases of pancreatic cancer in a study.

    Of course, the people behind the study aren’t sure if it causes the cancer, but it may be a step in the right direction.

    • Yes, it is😦


  3. Well I was pretty sad when I heard the news on Monday. Keep on thinking about this song actually. He had a pretty good voice, and was an actor I liked in Dirty Dancing.


    • Yes, he was a multi-talented person and Dirty Dancing is one of his most well-known films.
