George Pérez

I was very sad to learn that the great comic book artist George Pérez announced a pancreatic cancer diagnosis. He is truly one of the greats.

I do not fear many things, but I definitely fear pancreatic cancer. It got my stepfather, Herb Putnam, in 2008.

It is typically untreatable by the time it is detected.

Here is a pic of my mom and my brothers and I on a hike with Herb on the Vineyard in December 2006. (L-R: Tyler, Herb, Zeke the springer, me, my mom, Davis.)

Herb was diagnosed in 2005 and managed to survive two and a half years, longer than most.

Star Trek actor Jonathan Frakes lost his brother to pancreatic cancer and has been active in raising money for charity.
