Please read his story written by his wife, Lisa Milliman:
My family’s world was forever changed in July 2013. We received the news that my husband, Rocky, has pancreatic cancer. We have two wonderful sons and Rocky was just 51 at the time and the epitome of health and fitness. We started researching and everything we read was devastating. There is no cure and the life expectancy with pancreatic adenocarcinoma is about 11 months from diagnosis.
He has participated in treatments and several trial studies in Montgomery, San Antonio and Atlanta to fight the odds and five years in, my amazing husband is still fighting. He has endured much through surgery, radiation (getting ready to start another round), and multiple chemotherapy regimens, but has never given up hope.
Rocky wants to be here for all of life’s joys yet to come, graduations, weddings, grand babies, and growing old with me.
Mounting medical bills:
Doctors’ co-pays, CT Scans, X-rays, MRI's, medications, and travel has really taken a toll on us. We do our part to save where we can but five years of treatment gets expensive.
What I want you to know:
Rocky has always been a wonderful husband and an amazing father. It didn’t take cancer for him to get these important things right. He’s always loved us big and put us first. He’s been the perfect patriarch leading by example.
Even with this awful disease he hasn’t turned bitter or asked why. He keeps his faith in God through all the hard parts and continues to be who he is–my family’s everything.
Thank you all for your generosity!
