My name is Anh. My sister, Suong (47), affectionately known as Sophia, has been battling pancreatic and stomach cancer for approximately three years now. With the help and guidance of the wonderful staff at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre here in Calgary, AB., she has been through various cycles of aggressive chemotherapy. Unfortunately this has done little to slow the growth and progression of the disease. One of the inoperable tumors above her stomach has grown so large within the past few months that she is no longer able to intake food. Nutrients are now provided through a nasogastric tube in a last bid attempt to keep Sophia from being bedridden.
