Rob's Pancreatic Cancer Journey

This to help my Dad,  Robert B Blanchette  with his journey thru a devastating diagnosis of Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer recently. He has been sick for a while, he just kept going and trying to push thru this on a day to day basis until one night he came down with a unbearable pain, which was diagnosed as acute pancreatitis at the time that we thought would heal with a little time off and rest, wow were we wrong.. fast forward 6 weeks and a couple of visits and test later, we now find out this is Pancreatic Cancer Stage 4 and it has spread into other organs.  He will begin treatment with Chemo Aug 27, 2018 with alot of prayers and great doctors we are given a chance at a little longer with him.  This is going to be a long hard journey for him and our whole family and a costly one as well.  There are many upfront and hidden cost that he and my Mom (Tami Blanchette) were not prepared for at this time in their lives. Their income drastically declined and the medical and household bills are still climbing rapidly. Any help is greatly appreciated and of course prayers are deeply appreciated as well. This is a fight for his life and without treatments death is imminent and all hope for recovery is lost, we are fighting it as a family to overcome this ...we all stand together to support him and Mom thru this.  We have never ask for help before but we desperately need your help now.
