Have you ever heard the phrase it’s not what you know but who you know?


“It’s not what you know but who you know,” was certainly true for 10-year pancreatic survivor Thom Mrozek.  Thom wasn’t sure how public he wanted to be about his diagnosis, but when his daughter, who at that time attended an episcopal school asked at Chapel “can we pray for my dad?” her request started the ball rolling.
Thom woke up one morning with a recurring pain that went on for a few days.  The pain became worse, and he took himself to urgent care.  The location of his pain caused the urgent care Dr to check his heart.  His heart looked good, and the Dr felt it was a stomach problem probably an ulcer or acid reflux. He was given some medicine and told to follow up with his Primary Care doctor.  Thom went to his internist who ordered a series of tests.  Thom, standing in front of his office received a phone call from his Dr “Thom it’s your pancreas, stop eating!” that comment lead to a “six-week testing treadmill.”
Watch or listen to Thom’s inspirational journey and how a prayer request led to a community of support for Thom and his family.
