Pancreatic Cancer Takes Out Upshaw and Carry

Pancreatic cancer took the lives of actor Julius Carry, and NFL Hall of Famer and Player Association President Gene Upshaw this week. Carry was 56 at the time of his death, and best know for portrayal of Sho'Nuff from the movie the "The Last Dragon". Upsahw, who was 63, received his diagnosis on Sunday, and was gone by Wednesday evening. Prayers go out to the Carry and Upshaw families in their time of grieving.

Some of the signs of pancreatic cancer are the following:

Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes).
Pain in the upper or middle abdomen and back.
Unexplained weight loss.
Loss of appetite.

Brothers, please go get annual physicals. Pancreatic cancer is very difficult to detect, and apparently once it hits, the chances of survival are minimal.
