A woman deals with the roller coaster ride of diagnosis, being cancer free, to reoccurrence.


Laurie Paolone went to lunch with friends.  Later when she wasn’t feeling well she thought she had food poisoning.  When the symptoms became worse she went to the Dr and was treated for an ulcer. It wasn’t until someone noticed she was jaundice (yellowing of skin/eyes) that she was told to go to the ER immediately and learned she had pancreatic cancer.   The first thing Laurie thought of was “oh my God, I can’t have my parents bury me.”  Laurie shares her inspirational journey through the roller coaster ride of diagnosis, the Whipple, chemotherapy, radiation, being cancer free to reoccurrences, only OC Talk Radio, Orange County’s only community radio station, live streamed from UCI Beall Applied Innovation Center at the Cove.
