World-first treatment made surgery possible for Ken's pancreatic tumor
Inoperable: Ken’s Pancreas Cancer
With a diagnosis of pancreas cancer, patients are often left without options. When the cancer is advanced, even surgery can be difficult or impossible. Fortunately, a first-in-the-world radiation treatment offered at the Henry Ford Cancer Institute – known as MRI-Guided Radiation – is helping patients fight difficult to treat and otherwise inoperable cancers. For Ken Hall, this new option, along with chemotherapy, is providing hope that eventually he can receive a life-saving surgery and beat the cancer that threatens his life.
