Peter Cracknell Medical History


My medical Condition

Hello. I am Peter Cracknell and I am 53 years old. I am very fortunate to live in Marin County, California. In 2017, I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Adencarcinoma, which is also referred to as stage-three pancreatic cancer. Fortunately, my surgeon was able to resect the tumor in September of 2017. I’ve been on an adjunct chemotherapy regimen that is scheduled to end in April 2018.

I hope the reason for this website is clear to you. I am eager to find practitioners and organizations that can offer complementary therapies that will keep my cancer at bay. I believe I am an excellent candidate to provide the best possible outcomes for you and your organization.

I want to sincerely thank you for visiting this website and hope that we will be able to embark on a dialog together very soon. Thank you.
