Lives Depending on Hope

Always have hope and continue through the hardships

Joe Fighting for Hope

Hope is something we all need to have. Especially in bad situations, like my dad. My dad is in a situation were it was hard to find to find hope. He looks back on his life and realizes how grateful he was. He is any normal human being, he was born, went to college, got married, and most of all had a supporting family through his rough times. On June 17 he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that spread to his liver and lymph nodes. In September, he spent a month and a half in the hospital with terrible infections and fighting as hard as he could. This was the hardest part on our family because we had to watch him suffer and not be able to see him. Then he was in rehab to regain his walking skills and told he could never walk with out a walker. A couple months later he is out of his walker and is able to walk but not like he could before. He has persevered through this whole situation with faith, god, and most importantly hope. The best news of all is when he first got sick his tumor marker was 3,759 and is now at 19! Joe Paciga is the strongest person I no and continues to fight through the adversity's no matter how difficult.
