    As of this year, Charlotte Rae is currently in remission, due to the fact
    that she caught it early. Because pancreatic cancer runs in her family,
    she wasted no time in getting tested for that. Both her mother and sister
    died from the disease.

    UCLA Medical Center is a great facility. I hope she dies well with her
    treatments. Hopefully she has medical insurance. Wish I did. :-(

    Wow… I didn’t know she ever HAD pancreatic cancer… :-( I especially
    remember her on ‘Facts of Life’ and ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ but retroactively I
    remember she was on “Car 54, Where Are You” and commercials and in
    innumerable other TV programmes…

    Charlotte Rae (who recently had a birthday, the other day) is one of the
    few people to have survived pancreatic cancer. Bonnie Franklin had
    succumbed to the disease, almost 2 mos. ago, too young.

    This was a good and helpful tool for Pancreatic Cancer. I am being tested
    now for familiar Pancreatic Cancer in my imediated family including
    Grandmother, her 2 sisters, my mother, and then my 47 y/o brother in 03. I
    came down with an abnormal Pancreas in a CT and Pancreatitis last week. Now
    I am having to get Genetic testing along with some other screening tests.
    It is worth it! Mary
