  • Unlike COVID-19, pancreatic cancer’s a sure killer taking among others: RBG, John Lewis, Alex Trebek and my wife.

    • It is also a lot more common than one might think. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 47,000 people will have perished from it in the U.S. this year, a number that shocked me.

      At least it’s not transmissible, as far as we know.

      My deep condolences on your loss.
