Pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic cancer is a malignant tumor of the pancreas. Each year in the United States, about 37,680 individuals are diagnosed with this condition and 34,290 die from the disease each year. In Europe more than 60,000 are diagnosed each year. Depending on the extent of the tumor at the time of diagnosis, the prognosis is generally regarded as poor, with less than 5 percent of those diagnosed are still alive five years after diagnosis, and complete remission is still extremely rare.[1]

Baruch rofeh cholim/baruch hatov vehameitiv! We Yidden are above statistics because statistically we should not be around, and how much more so Chassidim after surviving Communism, the Shoah, assimilation and secularization.

Gut Shabbos and we should always hear good news!
