My dad has pancreatic cancer (islet cell type) and has survived for 3 years. This is a slower growing type but it has metastisized to his liver. I have done much research for him and spoken to many survivors who should have died long ago. They all did "alternative" treatments. A consistent theme was they all used a nutritional approach, primarily juicing intensely. There is the Gerson therapy which has been around for many years. Dr. Max Gerson was the originator and his clinic is run by his daughter now. I encourage you to check out everything along with surgery. Good luck!
