cancer in 2007. This is his story, and the story of pancreatic cancer, narrated
by Lippe and Dr. Dung T. Le, the physician who is treating him.

signs that something was wrong; Le continues with a description of pancreatic
cancer, its symptoms, and its treatments. Lippe talks about his prognosis,
contemplates the prospect of death, and describes how he began to cope; Le
explains the importance, for both doctor and patient, of balancing hope and
truth. Lippe speaks frankly about the toll the disease takes on his marriage and

positive things that sometimes emerge from illness.
