My wife (Julie) was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October of 2015. She had taken Chantix to quit smoking in 2012 and was successful with quitting. However she did gain quite a bit of weight. She was 56 when diagnosed and 57 when she died July 31st, 2016 from complications from a whipple procedure to remove her tumor. Where they peeled the tumor away from her artery a small hole developed two days after her surgery and she started bleeding. The next two days were horrific as they tried to correct this problem but never could. It was a bad break since we felt she was doing so good after surgery and looked like her battle with cancer was over for awhile. She had faced it with extreme bravery and was almost there, but she was taken from us --just like that. I do not blame anyone. They did all they could do. I feel her cancer was caused from chantix since it changed her body characteristics so much. She was a healthy eater even though she did gain the weight. Oh well--thought I would share. John Manuel
