Michelle's Story

The life of Michelle Kirlew, an active and vibrant mom, was turned upside down by pancreatic cancer. It usually strikes people over 70…she was diagnosed at 41. Facing a battle with a form of cancer that kills three of four patients in the first year, she fought. What followed was a whirlwind of appointments, tests, treatments, surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.

This emotional and physical rollercoaster usually happens out of sight and out of mind, behind closed curtains and doors at doctor’s offices and in homes. Michelle and her family want to change this. They believe her story can change lives. This is "Michelle’s Story."
