Hi fellow Lumberjocks I recieved a special gift today in the mail from my all of you and I want to say it made my day. I got a t-shirt (Lumberjock t) and it said it was from all of my fellow woodworkers at Lumberjocks and I just want to say thanks to everyone for the gift and your support while I fight this cancer. Woodworkers are some of the best people in the world if not the best! and I am so proud to be one.

For all of you that do not know I have pancreatic cancer and was given 6months or less to live about two weeks ago. God has not shown me a experation date so I am waiting on his word. If you want to learn more visit my personal site at

May God bless all of you for your kind hearts and support.

Duane & Family

Duane, I posted on your other thread; I don’t know what happened, but in case you didn’t see it for some reason I’ll just repost here:

Duane, I was completely unaware of this so I sure won’t take any credit for taking any part in sending you this special T-shirt although I’m sure glad that you received it and that some of the people thought about seeing that it was done. However, that doesn’t stop me from giving you a special internet {{{ hug }}}, so to speak, and pray that the Good Lord will watch over you and your family and will keep y’all in the palm of His hand throughout the ordeal and that He will make you strong and build up your endurance and give you a special peace that only He knows how to give. I certainly will pray that He gives you final and complete victory over this disease.

Don’t ever give up the fight, God is in control of all things and has power over all things including pancreatic cancer. If He wills you to live through this it will happen and if not then He will call you home where all tears are wiped away. Either way you will be victorious. His will be done.

God Bless

I hope we washed that shirt before it was mailed…. there are 26,628 of us who wore it and you never know where in the world it has been :)

May your battle be won so you can survive and experience many more years with your loved ones. Keep heart that there are people you have not met in person that wish you well.
