“Put Your Pants On” CarePages post from Greg Griffith on March 24, 2010

This is a message we all need to hear at different times in our lives!

I was feeling a little down this morning (feeling sorry for myself) when I turned to a book a friend gave me. The book was written by Dodie Osteen and entitled “Healed of Cancer.” Cath has mentioned this book on carepages in the past but it is the first time I picked it up and read it. It is a very spiritual book about faith but one of the things that impressed me was Dodie’s lunch bucket approach to life. I came away from the book not feeling sorry for myself but with a need to put my pants on and get moving. CONTINUE READING

The Griffith’s Story

It’s our desire that this website be a place for all those affected by pancreatic cancer to have their questions answered and receive support from those who’ve gone through similar situations. We believe, with this goal in mind, that this site is the first of its kind. We hope that the Griffith’s experience, as told by Cathy Griffith, will be the beginning of fulfilling that mission.

On Saturday, January 30th, Greg played two hours of basketball. He was the high scorer in the game and felt great throughout. At four o’clock that afternoon, we went to church, and I noticed that Greg looked a little yellow. Afterwards, we went to dinner. Greg said he wasn’t hungry.
