Rosa Velasco’s journey with pancreatic cancer began after learning her coworker’s wife was fighting this deadly disease.  Instead of running away, Rosa ran towards Roberta and they soon became fast friends, “Besties.” Rosa and her husband Juan became a great source of support for Roberta and her husband Vic. During a PurpleLight in Orange County, a tribute to those affected by pancreatic cancer, Rosa, found out her grandmother died from the disease years earlier. Since learning about Roberta and her grandmother she has learned many of her coworkers have experienced pancreatic cancer in their lives as well.  Rosa, a real-life Angel feels she gets more than she gives.  Rosa is open, honest and vulnerable as she takes you through her journey and why she became, and stays involved with the world’s toughest cancer. Though she says, “its all about Roberta,” others like Lupe Romero, a six-year survivor before her death in 2019, touched her heart.  Rosa wants to keep fighting for all survivors and for their families. Though the journey can be hard at times, it is a way to give back and can be a joyous ride as well.  Rosa’s journey may cause you to shed some tears, but it will also bring some laughter and hopefully will encourage you to get involved.  Listen to her journey here on OC Talk Radio, Orange County’s only community radio station.  If you or anyone you know need help with their journey, please contact the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s Patient Services at 877-2-PANCAN.  If you’d like to share your story or have story ideas, please contact Roberta Luna at LivingHope2055@outlook.com

How does a man who can fix anything deal with learning his wife has pancreatic cancer?

Vic Luna, “Roberta’s Husband,” shares his journey of being a Caregiver for his wife of 46 years and his father-in-law and mother-in-law.  Years ago, Vic was given the nick name “nino fix it,” by family and friends.  You had a problem, or something didn’t work or was broken, Vic could always fix it.  “Nino fix it,” could fix anything until pancreatic cancer, the world’s toughest cancer entered his life.
