Geri’s Story

A routine follow-up scan for a previous cancer diagnosis led to the discovery of Geri’s dilated biliary ducts and her pancreatic cancer. A Whipple procedure was performed to remove the cancer at the head of her pancreas, and following chemotherapy and radiation, Geri is now on the road to recovery.
