Our sister Ann Pardoe was diagnosed with Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer. We need help right now.

Thank you for your support and donations. It is wonderful to hear from all of you. Friendship is the best medicine. :)
My sister Ann Pardoe is a grandmother, sister, mother, aunt and wife. She learned very suddenly two weeks ago that she has stage IV pancreatic cancer. We are reaching out for your kindness and generosity in this family emergency. We are all helping, visiting, cleaning for her so that her family is not alone. But our time and money resources are limited.

There will be immediate and intensive treatment that is required to manage the illness and the pain. She has limited insurance through her husband's job. It is expensive and covers very little. Another hardship is that her husband and children must continue to work every day for insurance and for their daily expenses. This is difficult when we all want to be at our best for her. Money helps.

Our family has owned a family business for more than 30 years. She must dissolve it quickly while she can still think and walk. Vendors must be paid....We are having special sales this week and next. After that wholesalers will pay pennies on the dollar for what's left.

Every day since the diagnosis is like a bad dream. We can't change this disease, but we can change how we manage her comfort and treatments. To 'give forward' is the sweetest think you can do in your life.

Thank you all for your donations and support.
