Larry Byers says “Every Day is a Gift”
One thing that I have learned to appreciate with my Cancer Journey is that every day is a gift. Thankfully there are more good days than bad days at this point in my journey, but the journey continues.

My story started back on May 29, 2013. I had been experiencing pain whenever I ate along with other symptoms. I made an appointment for Friday May 31, in Slayton. I had blood work and a CAT scan done which revealed a blockage in the bile ducts between the liver and pancreas. After an overnight stay in Slayton, I was transferred to Sanford in Sioux Falls on June 1. More tests were done that showed my liver enzymes were highly elevated. An ultrasound and MRI were ordered and on June 2nd the results of the MRI showed a cancerous tumor called a “Klatskin Tumor” of the bile ducts. The doctor wrote the words “Klatskin Tumor” on the message board in my room and I can remember staring at those words for a long time while I was in the hospital.
