You Can Beat the Odds

RIchard Blish and Marian Muir Woods

Richard Blish was healthy and athletic in 2009, when his strength vanished, his appetite disappeared, and he developed jaundice.

After receiving a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, his daughter, an M.D./Ph.D., directed him to a clinical trial. Richard credits the trial with saving his life. As a long-term survivor he devotes part of his time in retirement to helping others facing the same diagnosis.
