Father Given 8 Weeks To Live Defies Odds With Surgery In Germany!

Filed under: InspirationHealthCancerScary!

When the UK refuses to perform surgery on you due to risk, what do you do? You only have 8 weeks to live because you've been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, which only has a 3.6% survival rate. Seriously, what do you do?

YOU DON'T GIVE UP.

Oh, and you head to Germany to get the surgery done at a private facility! Then, no matter how drastic the operation, you look forward to the rest of your life because it worked!

Dr. Michael Barsby did ALL of that, after initially being told he had eight weeks to live after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. His country told him the operation would not be carried out because of the risks involved.

Luckily, his prognosis improved to a 50 per cent chance of surviving a year once he started chemotherapy, and now 11 months on, he is cancer-free after a private operation in Germany — which removed his pancreas, along with his spleen, gall bladder and part of his stomach. Here's what he said:

We can NOT believe that intolerance like this exists, and this whole story makes us so sad and sick to our stomachs! We can't believe there are people out there willing to assert themselves as such uncaring and unsympathetic human beings!

Here's what happened! We spotted a tweet from adorable musicians Lennon and Maisy (proof of how adorable they are HERE) it said this:

“A close family friend has an autistic boy and this was an anonymous letter slipped under her door. This is real.”

That's right, mother****ers! Samuel L. Jackson has had ENOUGH of men not speaking out about health issues, so he's going to change it!

Specifically, he's the new face of the One For The Boys drive, which urges men to visit their doctor on a more regular basis — leading to earlier cancer diagnosis rates! Sam has always been about charity, and now he's knee-deep!

Dog Fighting Cancer Holds On Until Soldier Owner Returns Home

Filed under: Sad SadDogAmazing

This is so ahmayzing and sad at the same time.

Kermie, an 11-year-old dog, was diagnosed with cancer only a month after her owner Eric Ralston was sent out on an 8-month military deployment.

She was only given 2-3 months to live.

Miraculously, Kermie survived way longer than the vets had ever thought she would.

Just as Eric's return home neared… his deployment was extended indefinitely.

His family knew Kermie wouldn't make it much longer…

Except for the fact that she DID!!

She survived all the way until she could be reunited with her papa!!

Look at how excited she is!! She even started doing better after he got home, eating and drinking again without any struggle.

Check out the video (above) to see a heartwarming reunion!!

Angelina Jolie's Family Has A Long History Of Struggles Against Cancer

Filed under: Angelina JolieHealthFamilyCancer

angelina jolies family has a long history of cancer

There's no question that Angelina Jolie showed TONS of courage when she announced her decision to have preventative, and the more we look at her family's history with cancer the more it makes sense that she would take such extreme measures.

The actress knew for two reasons that she was at a high risk of being diagnosed with cancer. The first was she had a BRCA1 gene mutation, which greatly increases the chances of getting the disease. The second reason was that it runs in her family.
