Rick Schiffhauer Pancreatic Cancer Story 2021 [Video]

It’s the third leading cause of cancer deaths, just behind lung cancer and colon cancer. And at just 57-years-old, Rick Schiffhauer found out he was stage four. “And I immediately started thinking about my children,” says Rick. “I’ve got five. Three adults and two little ones, ten and eleven. So I thought about my little girls and my wife. And worried about their future here without me. I was more or less thinking the worst. What happens to me? What’s going to happen to my family? What am I going to do? Where do I turn?” That’s when he was introduced to the Seena Magowitz Foundation.“Roger Magowitz called me,” says Rick. “And he and I developed a friendship.”Roger and his team directed him to get treatment at HonorHealth in Arizona. It was there, with encouragement from friends and family, that his attitude began to change. “I credit them will a lot of my success,” he says. “I truly do. I believe in the power of prayer. I believe in God’s plan for all of us. And I can’t thank those people enough for all of their support. It took me a while to get to the point where I knew that I could beat this, and I would beat this, and I’m 100% sure of that.”“There’s been a couple of days as you can imagine punched him in the throat a little bit,” says Rick’s best friend, Don Cooper. “But I would say the most amazing piece about this is he’s been upbeat the rest of the way; he’s been positive the rest of the way. He’s said, you know, ‘Hey I’m going to win, and it’s going to help me bring awareness, it’s going to help me raise money, it’s going to help me help other people.’” Rick has already raised over $70,000 for The Seena Magowitz Foundation to fund clinical trials.“We just want to help people,” says Rick. “And we want to find a cure for this nasty disease.” “Pocket change, big donors, all of us that can be involved in this,” echoed Don. “Every time we take a step like this, we’re helping someone else, and you just don’t know. A year ago, I didn’t think about pancreatic cancer. It hadn’t affected anyone. Now, it affects one of my best friends. It could affect me tomorrow. The thought of what you can do today might save your own life, a year from now. It may save your best friend, your father, your brother’s life, or your sisters twelve months from now.” “Don’t give up,” encouraged Rick. “Because miracles happen. Why not you? Why not me?”
