Against the Odds: A Pancreatic Cancer Survivor's Story



Alyssa Brewer was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at age 37, a disease often considered terminal. Five of the first six doctors she spoke to initially treated her like a lost cause. But she was determined to survive, and with the help of her husband, changed her lifestyle and diet, and thirteen months later she showed no discrete tumor mass. When she needed a risky surgery to survive, she turned to the UW Carbone Cancer Center, who she credits with saving her life.
