    My brother Jim Glassen was just diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer which has spread to his stomach and liver. The prognosis given is grim. He and his family have chosen a non traditional treatment plan and are very hopeful. We believe in Miracles and are praying for one.
    Please join me in this fight through the power of prayer, positive energy and faith!

    Couple years ago this same cancer took my Rocket partner and good friend Joe.
    All i am asking is you take 30 seconds and pray just a little bit that it doesnt take my brother!

    Thank you ❤️

    We too believe in the power of prayer, and are happy to light a candle for your brother. Please let him know that a lot of people are pulling for him and his family.

    Just prayed. My pastor and dear friend Tim has stage 4 renal cell carcinoma, and my good friend Dave from church has stage 4 melanoma. It has been pretty hard on our whole church. Please pray for them too, if you're of a mind to. Thanks.

    Well wishes. Alex Trebek of Jeopardy! fame was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer last year and appears to be responding to his chemo well so there IS hope.
