Businessman, educator and volunteer first responder, Mr. David Kochanczyk of Martinsville, IN, traveled with his sons, Martin and John, to DC for the 3rd Cancer Cachexia Conference. He spoke to the group in our patient-physician-caregiver session, providing personal insights into his six year battle with pancreatic cancer and cachexia. Attendees were deeply moved by his story and he received a standing ovation.
Mr. Kochanczyk passed away on January 21, 2017. His family has given permission to use his remarks and photos on our website so that others might benefit from his experience and wisdom.
