St. Louis Cardinals great Bob Gibson is fighting pancreatic cancer.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch said the 83-year-old Hall of Famer was diagnosed with the cancer several weeks ago and revealed the news Saturday to the other living Hall of Famers.

Gibson was 251-174 with a 2.91 ERA in 17 seasons with the Cardinals from 1959 to 1975. The right-hander led St. Louis to World Series titles in 1964 and 1967, and the National League pennant in 1968. He was 7-2 in nine World Series starts.

Pancreatic cancer is a bitch.  It is a silent killer.  Once it is diagnosed it is too late.

Are you saying pancreatic cancer has a 100% mortality rate?

This kind of cancer is hard to diagnose. My dad died of pancreatic cancer back in 1965 but it doesn't seem as if many advancements have been made in diagnosing and treating it since then. :no: :brickwall:
