Jim, I know you to be a fighter so, give ‘em hell and quote a legendary Marine, Capt. Lloyd Williams, from the Battle of Belleau Wood in WWI, “Retreat, He’ll! We just got here.”

Every time i take a look back at what had happened to me i will always appreciate the great dr Adoda (www.dradodalovetemple.com) for what he has done for me. This spell caster brought back my finance, who left me just for no reason. I met the great spell
caster and he told me all i need to do! Now am glad Dr Adoda brought him back and he love me more than he used to! you can also contact him on his active Email address ( email@example.com ) or add him on Whats-app: +2348112825421.
I tried everything to have my girlfriend back, all to no avail. She gave up on me and left me, but i still love her!
Am glad i met dr Maway (http://drmawaylovespell.com) i contacted him and i narrated it all to him. he did his readings and told she will be back. i did all he asked me to in good faith. Before i know it Jane came back begging me with tears on her face. i was
so glad Dr maway helped me out. Contact him:firstname.lastname@example.org, +2348164690976.
Andrew & Gia Burnett
Just read the latest update....great to hear that in the last year you have improved so much, especially your kidney! We continue to pray and hold great thoughts for you and your family. We miss you, Andrew & Gia
Hi, Jim, I met you last night at the Lexicon Pharm. conference. We are so happy that you and Robin took the time to talk with us about your experiences and triumphs with PRRT. My 35 year old granddaughter, Mindy, was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 NET
and is looking for help and information. You truly gave her hope and inspiration! Your neighbor, Sandy
Mom, Dad and brothers
When you have family and friends who care, it sure makes it easier. Working for FedEx is a blessing too. Everything is OK, stable is a great word. It's been 38 months, what a crazy story which continues mainly due to my wife Robin. Her research is why
i am still around.
Its a blessing to help encourage others, serves a purpose why i got this. Also, in my little part, i was happy righttotry.org passed. This new law will help others like it did me. Hey, if i gave up i cant help anyone... so no giving up for me.
My husband, Bruce Hill, is a 2 & a half year survivor of pancreatic cancer. He has a blog, waginghopewithbruce.com, which one of our sons manages. I hope you will follow it, as we will follow yours. God bless & Never Ever Give Up!
met you on the plane flying southwest 3 yrs ago!... you and lady in window seat were sharing grandchildren pictures, so I happily joined in! think of you and pray for you, still have the napkin with your email address! soooo happy to hear you are doing
well! I pray you continue to recover COMPLETELY and be healed. I'm going to share this with you, as it keeps coming to mind when I see this napkin. I didn't know that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and that by his stripes (beatings) we were healed,
but someone told me that God loved me, and I could have eternal life be repenting of my sins and asking Jesus to come into my life. It was life changing, and the wonderful gifts he gives us are healing, salvation, and eternal life, and peace now, plus a relationship
with Him.... the opportunity to learn about Him and become more like Him right now. I hadn't known about this, so now I share it with others who may not know either.
He said Healing is the children's bread! ... so when we surrender out lives to Him, we become His child, and you know how we love our children! and how delightful it is to give them gifts that they love! so, just saying, in case you have never heard, Jesus
loves you, (and that's why I do too), and why I'm telling you about this because it's true and too good to not share. May you know him also , and may you be completely healed be filled with peace and no more worries or anxiety, no fear of death.
In Christ's love, Sandy
Jim - so glad to hear you are doing well. You are in my thoughts all the time. Say hello if you are in Seattle!
Dolly Thomas Berry
Jim, you are still in our minds, our thoughts and prayers. Your journey has been amazing. Thanks to your daughter for keeping us up to date on your progress. May you continue to do so well. Ron & I wish your continued progress & many great times with your
family. (Royalton in Mexico two years ago!)
I couldn't have picked a better seat on that flight to Denver! Your courage and will to find a way inspired me more than you can imagine. I shared your story with my Wide Receivers before practice today...We are fighting with you in our thoughts and prayers!!
P.S. Keep an eye out for any blazing fast Wide Receivers that you come across in the future!
Hi Jim - I have been following your journey these last two years and want to express my concerns and my positive thoughts for your future. You have a solid support team behind you - both near and far. Stay strong and keep that positive attitude!
thank you for another articulate and heart-warming post. You are blessing to your parents and all of us who anxiously wait for your updates.
Your favorite second daughter
I love reading about your strength and courage. You're simply amazing and my favorite second dad 😝 You're a blessing to everyone's lives you have touched. I love you stay strong hopefully see you in November when I visit Paige!
Great Write up as always but the Lake and women has to go !!😂😂😂😂😂
Your Favorite Daughter :)
I am so happy that everything is going so well! I am thankful everyday that I get to see and hang out with you whenever I want/can. Love you more.
Rick and Desiree Maloney
Great News Jimmy!!!!
Keep it going
Gordon "Cap'n" Payne
What wonderful news!! So glad to read your updates on your awesome Dad, aka "da Hammer!", Paige!
Not surprised at all....this is SAP for The Hammer I know....Keep Calm and Carry On! Attaboy Jimmy.....
Marty & Ron Tokarchik
You are truly amazing. What a journey you are on. We pray that your results continue to be amazing. We just got back from Kathmandu. Would put that at the bottom of your bucket list. Not what you expect. Otherwise, continue hiking in Colorado!!!!
Jim, you have been on a tough and sometimes an amazing journey the last 2 yrs. It is exciting to hear that those 2 tumors have reduced in size by almost 50%. I know it's not super smooth curve going up. But its going up. If anyone can beat this thing you
can. I've seen what you have done with this and with other things in the past so I know you can do it. You have such a supporting family group and a circle of friends that you can't go wrong. Keep on keepin' on.
Paige, Your dad's trip to Havasupai is accurate, 10 miles up and down, a mile gain of elevation. HOT at the bottom, Cold at the top - yes if he said "it blizzard" I believe him. If he said two years ago, " I am going to beat Pancreatic Cancer" I believe
him. If he says, "Google is a Great Customer" I believe him. All these things are true. But what is most true is you have an amazing father, who raised amazing kids, who are raising their own amazing kids. God has blessed the Burhorns with grace and love.
Keep it up Jim. So nice to hear.
Jim, good to hear your cancer tumor has reduced in size & now everything has stopped growing! 1 more shot to go and then you're done. Your journey has been an amazing one for sure! Keep on keepin' on!
Jim/Robin, very pleased to read Paige's post. Hope you are feeling better. God bless you
This Rob has been in SD Cali a week now at my Mom's ~ Alexandra is here to with her Dentist husband who pulls teeth for the Navy.. I had to get out of the pressure of the on site rutine selling this big house in KW. So me and this Angle dog split.. we made
it to Tucson ~ long drive from Houston.. we just did not have enough gumption left for another hour north to Phoenix to stay with my buddy Jim Bo..
this is only my second sale of a house.. not 25 like your parents (mercy, Robin is the queen of such) I am such a wosie at it). I went to bed here at 9,, couldn't sleep right. Up at 1 now and had to check in on your Jim page. No wonder I couldn't sleep properly.
Going through your first paragraph singled me that "o no" sign. Better now after I finished >
I re-read your earlier message where Paige went way over board about this Rob.. Honey I am by no means something special or a spiritual giant of any sort. It's likely I've not seen your Dad more than half a dozen times in theses past 31 years.. (Clay Morgan,
the staving artist turned 31 Sunday) I am going to comishion Clay for a Jim Bo / Robin portrait soon ~ just to jack up JB..
I just happen to make a showing at times to back up your Dad when it was convenient.
Mercy Sakes ~ this Man is a miracle of inspiration to many.. He ain't doing all of this because he wants to stay here for Jim.
puts tears on me ~ this man wants to continue with his Love investment ~ oops out of lines here - dang
Jim, your medical journey story was both inspirational and entertaining. Thank you for sharing it with your FedEx family this past week in Dallas. Da Most is the most!! We stand with you, my friend.
YES! Treatments are working and the radiation is on board. Can't wait to see the red heart you will illuminate on Valentine's Day!
I just finished 30 radiation treatments and I have the most amazing suntan in a place I would have never exposed prior to breast cancer. See...there are some perks along the journey. Keep kicking cancer's butt and stay positive. You have a huge support posse
taking this journey with you. That's POWER! Keep climbing my friend.
So glad to hear the great news!!
That's awesome news Jim! I have no doubts you will kick this. See you soon
Happy New Year Jim. Looks like you are doing well. GO BIG RED
You are the most inspiring person I know. Live life to the fullest. Love deeply. Paige, get the movie rights for this man's life.
Jimbo, our thoughts and prayers are with you on this journey. You've got a great team (family) and supporters (friends) backing you in what will eventually end in the greatest WIN for all. Stay positive and strong good buddy....we're all rooting for you.
And special thanks to Paige for her fantastic communication skills.
Nadine & Jonathan
We are praying for you Burhorn!!! Sending positive thoughts and love!
I and Deborah pray each day for you.
I had the honor of sitting next to Jim on my Southwest flight back to CA. By random chance, following a comment regarding my bald head by the stewardess, Jim brought up his recent fight with being bald as well. Little did I know it would lead to one of
the most impactful conversations I have ever had. I learned of his battle with pancreatic cancer, and I could immediately relate to his journey given my mother's battle with stage 4 breast cancer. We discussed the power of faith, resiliency, family, and living
in the moment. Jim, you left a lasting impression, and I wish you and your family the best! You will make it through this...
I am also climbing this mountain and am still fighting (like a girl) to reach the peak. Six full blown chemo treatments, 1 year of Herceptin infusions, scans, surgery, human pin cushion impersonation, it's all a part of the climb. It can be done and YOU
will accomplish the mission. REACH THE PEAK WITH ME! The side effects can be managed. Plus, you always get an extra scoop of ice cream and preferred parking. Everyone will help you with prayers and emotional support. You've got this! KEEP CLIMBING!
Option #1 it is! You are a climber and the peak of Everest is at your fingertips.
Love reading the posts. Glad to see Jim doing well. Prayers and best wishes!
Hi Jim, you look great in your videos! Glad you are feeling well. Keep fighting and winning!
Lisa and Mark Antush
Hi Jim, sending love and prayers from Sammamish, WA. We're close friends of Dwight and Susie's. So delighted and awed by your incredible good news. I'm seems God has other plans for you! You certainly must feel the hope of new life, both because of your
newest granddaughter and your incredible faith. We continue to pray for you and your family. Safe travels back to WA!
John J. Davis
The Cleveland Cavaliers win the NBA Championship and James "LeBron" Burhorn is kickin it to cancer.......Life is Good!!!!........Jimmy,,,,your a Rock a Star!!!!.....Praise God and keep the faith!!!
This has to be the best news I've heard since my son was born....and on that note, Happy Father's Day, Jim!
I salute you for your courage, faith and tenacity Hammer, and all the love and perseverance that Robin and your great family have shown during your battle. May God continue to heal you so that one of these days we'll all be hiking together in Sedona.....a toast
Attaboy Hammer! Keep fighting and we will continue prayin and looking forward to answered prayers. What an inspiration you are Jim....may God continue to bless you!
Jim, you are making me (I'm sure there are a lot of others as well) run out of superlatives about your latest results post-whipple! I am left with shaking my head in amazement, grinning, and saying yup that's the guy I've known for 36 years!! The Man upstairs
must like you a lot!? Keep on Keepin' on!!
Dianna Davis Flores
Carpe Diem Jim!

Jim, Hang in there, Hell of a surgery, one tough guy seem your surgery was a good choice, great move
Mary and Alex
The incredible true and inspiring story of Jim Burhorn.
The man who went Rocky Mountain Climbing and 2.7 seconds on a bull name Fu-Man-Chu.
God listened to the prayers of friends and families, and rid Jim's pancreas of cancer! Jim all the meanwhile gave us the example of how to live each day with passion and a positive outlook, to love and to inspire. I think Tim McGraw was thinking of Jim again
with- Humble and Kind.
Wow, that video of you dancing gives new meaning to the phrase "recovery after surgery." Amazing. Keep up the positive attitude and we'll keep up the thoughts and prayers!
James, you look fabulous dancing about like a teenager! Hope your taste buds recover so you can eat more and gain some weight! lotsa love coming at you!
Jim, I am so grateful for your recovery and the success of your surgery. Your attitude and support system is inspiring. Keep up the good work. You are winning. Jill Gwaz
Debbie & Dave Jackson
Awesome dance Jim! Everyday we think of you & your beautiful family! So glad your heading home. I know your family is looking forward to celebrate with you.
I had a big grin on my face when you danced out of the front door and dropped your cane! Then gave a modified Usain Bolt move! I love it. It reminded me of "Billy the super sales guy" back in DEN!? LOL. Damn you are setting the standard. Don't overdue.
The hammer looks great......Jim....Guthrie send me the purpose wrist band....I wear it proudly and tell everyone how moved I am of your profound strength and optimism. This coupled with your amazing family, friends and God's grace.....your going to beat
this! Stay strong my friend!
Cindy & Tom Bolinger, cousins in Indiana
Jim and family...God bless you all for your strength every day. You are all AWESOME! We keep you all in our prayers...and send our love.
Bruce and Michelle Vinson
Jim, Michelle and I have been praying for you and your family from the beginning of your journey. You'll hammer your way through this. They don't call you "The Hammer" for nothing. We continue to keep you in our "daily" thought and prayers and you're truly
an inspiration to us and I'm sure to many.
Mark and Tami, cousins in Indiana
Jim and Family, Amazing story and an amazingly brave and young man you are! We continue to pray for healing strength wisdom and peace. Love to all!

Jim, You just continue to amaze and impress as your will and drive to win is helping to pull you thru this thing! That and your support network and family. Believe me, I've heard from experts that prayers do make a difference as well. Hopefully soon, this nightmare
will be over for you! God bless and keep good fight going!!
Thank you Paige for keeping us updated on Jim's status. Jim is so lucky to have such a wonderful supportive family.
Nadine and Jonathan

Jim, I put my remarks about your post surgery results & recovery on Facebook. Besides your friends and family you had another 'Big Time' supporter that ensured your chances of surviving this illness is as high as you can imagine! I can just imagine how
tough the recovery is and will be going forward. Hang in there and have the faith! Your support network is the best possible!
Very happy to hear that your surgery went well. We wish you a good recovery and looking forward to having you back for some action!
Jim - we are standing in the gap praying for rest, strength and a speedy recovery. I know the positive spirit and can-do attitude you bring into every situation will continue to lift you above your circumstances and enrich all who know you.
Bonnie Bailey Davis
We prayed that you would come out of the surgery successfully and will pray that your recovery is swift. See you soon. Bonnie
Jim - everyone at OtterBox Logistics Department is cheering you on - you are in all our thoughts, and we know how tough you are. So keep on fighting - you're in the home stretch!
Jim.. Keep up the good fight. You are in my thoughts and prayers always. I'm setting up a tee time around the 4th of July and we'll get out.
I found this at my grandpas house a few months back and like you Jim he seemed so defy all the odds with his unprecedented love of life and family! I think we have only met a couple of times but you must be a pretty amazing guy due to the fact that Scott
is such a great friend, father and all around good guy!! I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts and wish you a quick recovery!!!
Paul and Helen
Hi Jim, this is Paul and Helen, we just heard about the surgery that you had. We pray that you will recuperate quickly. We have been keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. May our Lord Jesus keep you safe and healthy from now on. Love from both of us,

CORRECTION - MAY 5TH!
This was an amazing update! So happy to hear this and still thinking of and fighting for you Jim (Hammer :-) ). Will send HUGE positive energy your way, especially on May 7th. Can't wait to hear some good "Jim/Hammer/Dad" jokes afterwards. :-)
Patrick W. Curry
Stay positive and know you have a ton of friends pulling for you.
If anyone can fight and win, I know it's you Jim. Nice to see all the great Airborne folks in our past checking up on you.
I have told you many times how much it meant to me to get a chance to work with you at 38! You told me "I'm giving you the position, but please don't quit or leave for at least 2 years or they will skin me alive."
It lasted about 7 and a half and was a great start to what I do today, have my own Medicare agency. "Don't V...t!" Yeah, I still remember that advice. "You sold me now go sell them!" That was a good one. I know from talking to others that worked for you, you
were always more than our boss. You were a very special person. You knew you had to do your work, but it never stopped you from being a great person to know.
I'd love to see you keep on going for as long as possible. Boy, Paige and Robin are really taking care of you. Stay strong and know that a lot of folks love you and pray for you! Stay well!
Lane and Hans
Thanks Paige, for your updates. We will be thinking about and praying for Jim and family on the 5 th. Sounds like Robin has done some good work too. Ox
Jim, I have some "spare" pounds I could loan you no problem!? LOL. Hey, you have your A team with you down in LA, so you are well protected! Don't forget about the 'Man Upstairs' as he has done pretty good guiding you up to this point. He'll be with you
as you see this situation thru. My money is on "HIM"
God bless and we'll talk after you recover from your surgery. If you want to talk prior to that just call any of my nbs. I believe you have them all?
Jim, just thinking about you and wish the best for you. I really like seeing the pictures of Frankie and Ronnie, damn we are getting old.
Jim, We are praying for you, keep up the good fight. Mary and I are encouraged by you.
Frankie and Ron
Jim, as they say 1 door closes and another door opens. With only about a month left on your medicine your beautiful wife finds another path to success! I've seen you operate and be successful for way too many years. There is no reason to stop now!? :-)
Paige is a fantastic scribe. She does an outstanding job keeping us all informed. I know your baby is due very soon so you'll have your hands full. All of Jim's grandkids will keep him young and full of life! Jim, you have a beautiful loving family. There
is no doubt that's why you're still here fighting the good fight.
Jim, fantastic news, and thanks for spending a few minutes with me on the phone while trying to navigate Robin back to the hotel! Glad to hear that tests went well and your scheduled to get the operation...I'm confident that your journey will only continue
to improve, and look forward to hiking with you soon in Sedona's Red Rock mountains 😎.
Debbie & Dave Jackson
Robin you have done wonders through your research. Finding the perfect surgeon, connecting with former patients & inspring your family. Jim you are an amazing caring father to your beautiful family. Always an inspiration to others, leader
& a positive person. Great things coming your way with the birth of a new granddaughter (very soon) & surgery to remove your tumor. Surgery will help & provide you with a better pain free life. Jim you have a great team behind you. Everyone supports you & wishes
you the best!
Paige thank you for the updates! May you have an easy delivery with the upcoming birth of your baby girl. We wish you & Dwight much happiness.
Avery James Burhorn
Jim, you've always been an inspiration to many of us.....refuse to lose my friend....with prayers...may God's grace shine upon you.....and when you need the team to rally ..count me in!
Jim, I was sorry to hear about your stent issue again this past week! That has been a tough intermittent issue for sure! My thoughts and prayers are with you this weekend that they can help you out by removing the tumor(s)!! I can't think of someone who
deserves a break like this anymore than you do!
Lane and Hans
As someone stated on Face Book, Jim, you are strong like bull. As is the family. Yes, Lots of prayers headed your way
Bonnie Bailey Davis
Jim, praying for your every day.
Hi Jim, Praying your new stint procedure was successful and that the new procedure in N.O. LA will prevent those from being needed in the future. Your precious daughter is doing very well and will have another 3D Ultra Sound April 4th and a good photo
to present to you! Keeping you and Robin and family in our prayers and thoughts. Luv you Jim
Jim! I don't know if you had a chance to come to Easter services. If you did and were looking for me, I was out with bronchitis. I will be on stage this coming weekend as well, Sunday April 3 at 9:30am and 11:00am. I really hope to see you and your families
there! We all are praying for you! God Bless. Hope to see you Sunday!
Hi Jim - it was a real pleasure meeting you last night on our flight back to PHX from SJC. I'm so glad we could discuss your cancer, and I am amazed and inspired by your candor and courage. My wife April and I are praying for you. We would love to see
you, your wife and sons & families at Sun Valley church on Easter Sunday (http://www.sunvalleycc.com/tempe/). Services are at 9:30 and 11:00. I'm playing both services and am easy to find: I'm the oldest guy on stage, playing bass. ;-) God bless you and your
family. We truly hope to see you all on Sunday.
I’m glad to hear you found a Dr in Louisiana that can perform that surgery. I’m wishing you the best and our family is continually praying for you and your family.
Hi Jim... Mary just updated the team on your progress. You and your extended family are truly an inspiration and positive force to so many. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Keep the faith!
Jim, you have been in my thoughts and prayers a lot over the past eight months since your diagnosis. You have even appeared in two dreams where we give each other a great big hug. Tho we haven't seen each other in over 40 years, I have great memories of
our friendship during you family's time in Florida. It's inspiring to see the love and support you have from your beautiful family and friends. If you and Robin make it to Florida for one of your get aways, I'll give you a big hug in person. Keep up your good
Jim, I think of you often and I'm sending you positive thoughts and prayers for a full recovery. you look great and your travels with your beautiful wife seem to be the best medicine. we are lucky that the research and medical community are making great
strides just in time for YOU your daughter is doing an unbelievable job with this site and her well written updates. thinking of you always Jill Gwazdauskas (from the good ole days!)
Donna and Rick
Paige, Jim, Robin, Brad, Scott, and the entire extended Burhorn family -- you are an inspiration to us all. We continue to hold you in our thoughts and prayers.
Paige. Wow. Well said. Will keep praying for more good news, less bad news......and a Broncos SB victory. You know with all the ex-Texans on Team, we call them "Broncos North". Ticker tape parade for Houston if they win

Thank you, Paige, for bringing us up-to-date. We continue to battle through prayer with the Burhorns, holding life precious and trusting that daily strength is being poured out on all. We are encouraged about the relationship with the Houston doctor and
praying for wisdom as the family decides on future medications and treatments. Blessings.
Paige, Thank you for such a great update on your Dad!
Ron & Marty Tokarchik
We so enjoyed watching the Broncos game with you yesterday. You are now in our prayers. Call us if you want to have dinner tomorrow night - Room 9343!! If not, we'll be keeping you in our thoughts.
alex and mary
Still praying, thinking and talking you up. Hope you are having smiles and good feelings.
Paige, thanks for the update on Jim. He's always in our thoughts! I look forward to seeing Jim and Robin in April when my step-granddaughter gets married!

The 12/15/16 update is fantastic. I also love the Happy Days song from the Sister Act. I loved the movie too! That is great news again about Jim's progress. This has been an amazing journey and it fits Jim's persona to a tee! Keep on keepin' on! as the
old saying goes!!!
Uncle John & Aunt Pat

to put out the cookies and milk tomorrow night for that little old gentlemen who will be coming to see you. Once again, you all have the "Best Christmas" ever.
Shared this great news with your FedEx Team FIT MDs today, what a pick me up! We are with you Most, almost time for a cameo, be ready! Merry Christmas!
Carryl and Leo McCrory
Jim, Leo and I are thrilled with all the good reports. You are truly an inspiration to everyone. We will continue to pray for you. With Love,
Keep these positive reports coming. It's the best Christmas gift! We continue to pray constantly for complete remission and that you continue to amaze the docs with your progress.
Great news Jim! Your positive attitude is an inspiration to all of us. So happy for you to get this good news right before you celebrate Christmas with your family!
John and Lori Davis
OH Happy Day!!! Great news for you Jim and your family!! We will continue to pray for healing!! God is good, all the time!!
Tom and Meaghan Read
Jim, Robin and Family: your support of Jim is inspiring ! I am so pleased that the treatment plan, prayers, and well wishes of support are working. Of course, Jim's courage, perseverance, and positive attitude are key enablers of success.
You are awesome, Jim !
Jim, this is the news we've all been praying for... and will continue to pray that you beat this insidious disease. Have a great Christmas, and will see you in 2016. Love the video!
Jim and Robin - you are so blesssed. God graces you with a wonderful family, friends home, and now - good health. Rejoice! What a wonderful Christmas present. Thank you for being in our lives. So nice to see you last month.
Dan Gibbs (an old FedEx colleague)
Hey Jim & Family,
So great to read of your progress. Your "can do" spirit reminds me of one of my favorite movies. It's called Hooisers and it's a true story of a small Indiana basketball team that through insurmountable odds wins the Indiana State high school basketball championship.
It's a story of unwavering effort, courage and perseverance. Some of the same qualities you possess in your battle against cancer.
We are proud of your fight. Have a wonderful holiday season
Rick and Desiree Maloney
Hi Jim and family,
This is unbelievable news! Keep up the great work, we'll keep sending you positive energy!
Rena & Art Chouinard
It was so great meeting you today Jim and both Art and I are so happy for your good news. We loved your website. Many Christmas Blessings are wished for you and your family.
Nadine and Jonathan
Oh Happy Day for sure Paige! Merry Christmas!!!
Jim and Robin, you both are a beautiful example of strength, courage and love! Big hugs from TEXAS!
Great news Jim and Robin! Have a Merry Christmas!
Never a doubt in my mind you will beat this! Keep the positive attitude and believe.. See you again soon my friend.
So happy to hear the amazing news! Thinking about you guys often, keep fighting! Merry Christmas!
God has delivered another great Chritmas gift in Jim's recent medical report. Merry Christmas Jim!
The Nov 12th update is the best news I've heard this year! Wow! Yet, on the other hand as I've said a million times it doesn't surprise me! You have that positive & confident outlook on things that seem to provide success in all types of life's arenas! God
Bless! I'll bet you Jon is smiling down on your shaking his head!
Dianna Davis Flores
Aunt Rosemarie & Uncle Jim
Hey Jim; Thinking & praying for you always. Seems as if you are doing pretty good.
Great news Jim on your November 12 check up
Read the latest post - good new Jim!
See you the week after when we are in AZ for vacation
Was an unexpected treat to see you last month and even more so the hug rather than a handshake. What a great gesture and feeling. Keep on being the positive gentleman you have always been.
Ok OK..no more Tack Hammer jokes, because you truly are the Sledge Hammer! Great news today. We are always praying for you, your family and your highly skilled Medical Team.
Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers!
Hey Jim and Robin it was so nice meeting you last night! You're a beautiful couple......everyone has a story to tell and I'm so glad you shared with us! Glad to hear the treatments are going so well , you look great! I have been praying and will continue
to pray for you! God is so good, may he continue to give you strength, comfort and peace to get you through this journey. Take care and God bless. Rick and Joy
Dianna Davis Flores
Great news from Oct 21st! Someone is watching out for you!
This is great news. I say he is trying to be funny in his picture.
Jim, you looked good last night. It was very nice surprise to see you. You bring smiles to all.
Lane and Hans
This is really good news! And I agree, Jim is a very funny guy.
Great news Hamma! Sending you and your family Texas size hugs. Will keep praying for you and your highly skilled Medical Team.
Thanks for the great update. I pray every day. Somewhere in the midst of all this God has a greater plan.
Todd and Amy
Always thinking positive for you Jim! Look forward to seeing you soon.
Jim, I am always happy to hear encouraging news.. You, Robin, and your entire family will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. I am happy that the treatment you are receiving is working and please stay positive and continue to make progress until
you have a complete recovery....
Brian M Reilly
I remember the time we first met. Your were my ,Airborne sales rep, and the best. We fast, became friends, and I cherish that friendship more than ever. You are now 15 minutes from my home, but micro seconds from my prayers. You will win this fight.
Jim, I was hoping to see you in Monte Carlo but I understand you have trading the trip for a wonderful Ambassador's Club trip with your wife. Good move.
I just wanted to share with you that you are in our daily thoughts and prayers.
Also, I forgive you for those days you called on EDS and Frito Lay in Plano and tried to steal my FedEx business for your old Airborne team. So glad you made to move to FedEx and have had such a stellar career with our great company.
Keep fighting. You have an army of friends and family with you. Hope to see you in our travels.
Aunt Rosemarie & Uncle Jim
Hey Jim: Praying you are doing better. You are in our prayers always.
Everyday is a different day some great some not so great so we decided it's probably best not to fly 14 hours to Monico and take a risk cause we never know when the pain can't be controlled and we sure don't want to be on a plane going to a foreign country
and have a medical emergency. But, Jim will always be number one to me and our family. Maybe Fed Ex will let us take second place and we will go somewhere in the USA.💙💚💛💜💘
Lane and Hans
So happy to hear the positive reports. Also glad that the scary episode in CA ended well, with the support and love and caring from Many. Sending our love your way!!!
Hey Burhorns!!! Great news. Thank you also for the great updates. What an amazingly loving family. I am inspired by your strength and determination.
So my 12 lb dachshund named lieutenant Dan wanted to make an appearance and show some love. She even decided to get fancy with her wig. She wanted to dress up even more but could not find her pearls. Y'all keep up the good fight. Lots of prayers going up. Much
Jim, I am so glad you had Teresa able to help you in the ER in CA. It was a caring and loving act of kindness that extended to your loved ones back in Phoenix as they were stressed out. Glad to hear they were relieved and praying that your better today
and just knowing they are better too. We were glad to hear of the results of your most recent exam and hopeful for continued successes. Keep safe and best of healing prayer for you.
Great to see your smiling face from your post yesterday, Jim! Your positive attitude is inspirational -- and know that my family and I are praying for more smiles from you and Robin. A big thank you to your loved ones for creating this blog and keeping
us informed of your fight and progress!
Jim on his way to Ca . To do his job for FedEx. Doing good.
Glad to hear the positive news. Continue the fight, and know that your entire FedEx family is thinking of you.
Wow Jim! Like I said before, it doesn't surprise me that you are doing such a remarkable job in taking this health issue on and winning! God bless you, your family, CTCA, and God for making this even possible! You look great on top of it! I'm sorry we
missed our lunch back in DEN. The timing just wasn't there as everything hit at once. It will be my great pleasure later on.
Jim, Robin and Family: Thank you for the update, and good news. Prayers, and well wishes continue your way from my Family !
Great news today Jim! Thanks for keeping us posted!
S W E E T news! Also praying for the skill and determination of your Medical Team.
Praise the Lord? Words can't express the happiness your information brings; and all the Gold Stars You Get for hanging in there. "God is Good All The Time"
We're praying for you every day.
Aunt Pat & Uncle John
It was good to talk to you a few months ago and follow your progress. As we both understand, we won't let the cancer define who we are, in fact if anything, it makes us a much better person. We're growing in areas we would have never ventured and impacting
peoples lives wherever we go. Keep up the good fight and we give God and the praise because He is good.
Teresa P. at Google
Great news today - love the update. Always thinking of you - always praying for you.
September 14th we will find out if the Tumors have shrunk!! 👍👍😇😇🙏🙏
Jim, it was great seeing you in August and to see how personally how well you are doing. Shame on that ER doc. Keep positive. Congrats on the trip. When is the move?
Sherry Erickson Zawadzki
Hi Robin, noticed your guestbook and I also lived in Lakefront, still own the townhouse, my son is renting and live in Scottsdale Arizona now. Just found out my husband also has cancer, Valley Fever, pneumonia, so I will also pray for your husband, and
Zenon is my young husband..prayer, prayer. He is at the Mayo Clinic
Great news from Aug 17th Jim! Robin & Paige are doing a super job on keep all of those who care about you posted on the latest info. Knowing you and the what you have done in the past between work and medical issues, this latest news doesn't surprise me
at all about you. You are positive, a winner and you expect to win. It's a gift and you have used it well through out your life! God Bless and I can't wait to hear the good news in Sept!
Loved reading the good report. Thx Paige. Sending love to the Burhorn family. Lane and Hans
Cancer is getting "Hammered". Great news on results!
Hammer, I think of you and pray for you every day. I hope that the "Pray For Hammer" wrist bands are a constant reminder to those who wear them, as I do to keep you and your precious family in our thoughts and prayers. For those of you who don't know,
when I was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2004, Hammer ordered the same purple wrist bands for me ("Pray For David") so it was the least I can do. I have a bag of about 50 here at my house so if anyone wants one send me your address and I'll do my best to
get them mailed to you. Love You Bro!!!! You have and will always hold a special place in my heart for all your mentorship and guidance. Many more years to come. Cant wait to see you again soon.
It was good to hear Jom had good blood work and liver is almost normal. We hope that September brings the best new that the main tumor has shrunk as he will have a CT scan that day to see if this medicine is doing its job! We keep positive as we follow
this path, and can't wait to be with our son's and their wives and grandchildren and close to his doctor in September.
Awesome news! Congrats on good reports, Jim! I expect to hear more.
Nadine and Jonathan
Great news Burhorn and fam!!!
Paige you report to us with such love and finesse! Your dad is certainly one of a kind. Hugs to you Robin!
Jim, I am sorry to hear that you are having to go through all of this. Getting to know you at Otter was a pleasure. You were always reminding me to stay positive and you were aware of the difference it truly made in my life. I know that you will carry
this positive attitude throughout your journey and will overcome this trial. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones. You have been a kind and caring soul since I met you. Thank you. Remember to be patient and kind to yourself.
Thanks for lunch today. Don't hesitate to call if you need anything. See you at Spring Training. Good luck in PHX. Don't forget my son is there if you need anything..........ed
See I remembered.
Special prayer for your recovery Jim from the Church of the Holy Spulchre in Jerusalem
Jim - you are a fighter! (I have been on the other side of you so I know! :) Wishing you positive energy and know that many of there are thinking of you right now.
Wanted to reach out (after all these years) and say hello. I bump into Jerry Christensen now and again and ask about you.
I'm wishing you well my good man. you were always someone us lowly Airborne district managers looked up to. Now even more so.
all my best
I worked with Jim when i was at Google, and i must say that inspite of the brief interactions i have had with him that he is one of the best account managers i have worked with. I wish you the best in this fight. My prayers and best wishes are always there
Hi Jim, As usual you appear to be kicking ass and taking names as always, I love it! Congrats on winning PC again, how awesome is that.....! I told you once you got a taste of the amazing trips you would be on a mission to repeat every year. Nice work
Well it sounds like you haven't let up much with your schedule. Remember the work will be there tomorrow. I see you lost 25 lbs back to your high school playing weight, OK that's cool and I'm sure you look even better now, you stud! Having said that lets try
and stay at playing wt. I got down to 136 and that was a little to light.
I hope Adam gave a big hug from me at the sales meeting and if he didn't I want to know.
My friend, be well and continue to put the Hammer down on all fronts as I know you will.
You are in my prayers and thoughts daily.
God Bless you and your family.
Dolly Thomas Barry
Hi Jim, I have been following your story for some time now. 4.5 years ago I was diagnosed with a 7cm pancreatic tumor. I had 0% chance of survival. Just want to say I am pulling for you and let you know that survival happens. You have a beautiful family,
full of love and I just know they are such a comfort and source if strength to you. All the best to you Jim xoxoxo
I see that Jim was awarded the #1 Salesman in the company. That accomplishment is pretty much what Jim expects to do and what I've seen him do over and over again at Airborne. He was a 'freight magnet' at Airborne and when he was on my Sales Team in Denver.
He was amazing. His attitude was always positive and his personality was always friendly and warm. I would never bet against Jim on anything! That includes his current fight.
God watches over you!
Jim is the supreme salesman. He deserves the salesman of the lifetime award, not to mention the same award for father and friend.
Diane Prater Vaughn
Thank you for all your loving words!!! Jim is a wonderful person, husband , father, friend and colleague. He has always been there for me and his family.
Because of the nature of this Cancer we have decided it is best to be close to his doctor and the cancer center. We found a great home in Scottsdale and have our townhouse under contract. Being close to our two son's Brad and Scott and their families will be
good medicine for us both. We move September 9th. The latest update is he does have some mouth sores from the medicine and he has lost 25 pounds but overall is taking one day at a time and I believe it is because of the support from all of you. Thank you for
sharing stories of how great this man is. Love, Robin
Rocket Ron Steinthal
Hi Jim, just wanted to drop you a note to say I am thinking of you on a daily basis and praying for your full and complete remission.
We have been through a lot of crap together over the years at FedEx and you always overcame the hurdles, however nothing quite like the challenge you are facing. It is so wonderful to see all the love and support you have from your beautiful family, friends,
business associates, and the people you have touched. No surprise Hammer you are a special person and you will not be alone on this journey, for the lord has blessed you with the same things you have given to other your entire life.
Jim you are one of the strongest, gentlest individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and you have a powerful mind, which along with your support network will be huge assets in conquering the twists and turns you will face in the coming months.
God Bless you.
PS, It's Hammer Time!
Hi Jim, this is Jill Sandul. Robin let me know yesterday of your battle with a cancerous liver tumor. You have always been so kind to me and my family, and I want you to know you are in our thoughts and prayers. It sounds like you have connected with a
great doctor and health care center, and I know you have strong family support. We know you will beat this and be back on your bike soon! Sending lots of positive energy your way!
Hi Jim - Steve Eller has shared your news with me and I want you to know that I am thinking of you from this side of the pond and sending over some positive energy to support your battle to beat this! There are rough roads ahead of course but as I recall
you are made of solid stuff and will keep fighting! Know that I'll be checking in from time to time and supporting you during the journey ahead -
Jim, So glad to hear your 4th stent should take care of things so you don't have to go thru what you did in DEN. I loved the pic of you & Frank Steel! That really brought a smile to my face. I always liked Frank as well. He always treated me well!
Debbie & Dave Jackson
Jim-hope your feeling much better soon! May this procedure take & keep you strong! Enjoy your upcoming vacation with family. Sending get well wishes your way.
Thanks for the video today page.
Jim, bless your heart, you are so strong and so brave. Please know that Gary and I think of you each and every day, the whole family, too. We are wishing you all the very best. Looking forward to you regaining your health and spending more fun family holidays
together, with all of this behind us.
Dad #2, you are a hero! You are an ordinary individual that has found the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles!
I want to apologize for not reaching out to you sooner, but I assure you that I have been following all of the posts on your condition since it was announced in hopes of miraculous news. I'm sure many people have expressed their care and concern and offered
to help you out in any way they can... But I'd really like the opportunity to make you and mom #2 a special, healthy and nutritious, homemade dinner that you can just enjoy in the comfort of your own home without having to do anything for it (no grocery shopping,
no prep, no clean up, nothing). Perhaps when you get back from Washington? I will gladly cater to your palate and any dietary restrictions you may have :)
What Cancer Cannot Do:
It cannot cripple love. It cannot shatter hope. It cannot corrode faith. It cannot eat away peace. It cannot destroy confidence. It cannot kill friendship. It cannot shut out memories. It cannot conquer the spirit. It cannot silence courage. It cannot steal
Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fear you have overcome.
Just recently reconnected with you and Robin. I got a chance one more time to thank you for my first real job, after being a country club tennis professional for 14 years!. Your kindness (and great evaluation skills) took a 38 year old guy who was foundering
and restarted my life.
How to thank you for that? Can't be done. Pass it on to others if I can. Yes, pay it forward. Great to talk to you also Robin. You two were great young parents and genuinely kind people. I pray he will get all the time possible to continue to bless your family
and us. Nice to have had such a great conversation two months back. Much love and prayer for you both.
Hello All, Jim receives his medicine today via Fed Ex of course! Afinitor 10 mg, a pill that will hopefully shrink his tumors. Some side effects are mouth sores and something similar to pnumonia (possible is 20percent of patients. He will remain on this
medicine for 3 months along with a monthly shot LAR that stops the production of hormones that the tumors secrete which are not good. We remain very hopeful that this medicine will work. A CT scan will be done in 3 months to see what this form of treatment
has done. If it does not work we will go to a more aggressive treatment. If it does work it will work for a period of time and then stop and the treatment will change accordingly. I feel confident that the right treatment will be found and maybe even a cure
in the near future with how fast medicine is advancing. 😘😘💕❤️❤️😇😇
Jim, Robin is doing a great job keep everyone posted on your progress. There seems to be a lot to be thankful for up to this point. It can always be worse! I assume you're keeping busy with work etc.? Your Seattle trip sounds great. Do you still have that
Remington 870 Pump shotgun that we bought back in the day to go pheasant hunting? If so, we need to do some skeet shooting & think about some pheasant hunting this winter? I just took mine to the gunsmith to get thoroughly cleaned & inspected. It's like a
brand new one.
John & Lori Davis
Hey Jimmy, this is your cousin John Davis Jr. checking in to say "Howdy" from Oklahoma. I can't say I know what your going through because every cancer situation is different. I was diagnosed with Stage III Melanoma and spent the last year making countless
trips to MD Anderson in Houston for CAT Scans, PET Scans, surgery, radiation treatments, doctor consultations and everything else they could throw at me (and bill). Doctors told me cancer has a mind of its own and I could be dead in a year or live to be 100,
but one thing I know for sure, GOD makes the final decision. "He" has blessed me with a great life and family and if "He" decides to take me home tomorrow...I'm ok with that. Let me know if you want a rematch on the famous "Red Rock Sprint," I'll need a few
days to find my knee braces and Geritol..Ha!Ha!
We are praying for you and your family every day!
Hi Jim, you are in my thoughts and prayers daily. We love you and are here to support you, Robin and your family.
Thinking of you every day Jim. It is so nice to see all your family photos. You have an amazing family and great support system. Sending positive energy and huge hugs from Sydney. My thoughts will be with you every day and will keep checking the site to
stay in touch.
Jane Stewart email@example.com
My caring and positive thoughts have been with you, Jim, and Robin and all of your family since Sharon told me about the cancer diagnosis when we were taking a hike. Now that I've read all the e-mails and updates, I feel sure that your fighting spirit,
your openness, and all the people who love you and are offfering support and sending prayers are going to help you beat the odds! Eat well, sleep well, love well, and play as much as you can!
Kelly & Lori Webb
Sending good thoughts and prayers to the "Hammer" every day.
Andrew "The Cat" Burnett
Thinking about you everyday. Sending great thoughts for your body's ability to defeat cancer and the skill of your medical team. It's Hamma Time!
I have to start by saying the Cancer Center is the best choice of care if they take your insurance. Jim, Paige, Scott and Nicole met with Dr. Niu today at 3:30. He said all the tests he ran came back positive, which means this is a Fucntioning tumor that
has spread to the Liver. There are 10 small spots on the Liver. Because of this, surgery is not an option. He will start him on LAR which is an injection once a month to try to stop the tumor but not shrink it. He will also use a medicine called Afinitor which
is a pill he takes everyday for 30 days to see if it will shrink the tumors. We will return in 30 days to check blood and check in and in 3 month they will do another CAT scan to check tumor growth. The main thing is keep your life as normal as possible, keep
a great attitude and don't listen to all the stories of others because you are you and what happens to you is not like anyone else. So, keep working, riding your bike and I'm going to get him to do Yin yoga which I think will help him. Take 5000 mg of vitamin
D, vitamin B complex and No alcohol. We will all travel to Seattle July 7-14 as a family and go to Orcas Island to go crabbing, fishing, hiking and enjoy our lives together. I think we are also going to have a family portrait done while we are all there. 😍😍💕💕❤️❤️😘😘😍😍
Sherrie and Verne DeHaven and Don Davis
Jim and Robin, Praying for you guys every day in Omaha!! Thanks for the updates Robin. Stay Strong!!
Thank you all for keeping up with Jim's page it is very encouraging to have all of your support. Paige fly's in today and she and Jim will meet with his doctor tomorrow afternoon to discuss tests that were preformed the last few days. I am expecting that
Dr. Niu now knows much more than he did at the beginning about Jim 's condition and how the tumor grows and also if it is producing hormones into his system ( a functioning Tumor) he has been meeting a lot of other Cancer patients who are very happy with their
care. Many have been fighting their cancers for yrs. two who have been battleing breast Cancer. I hope that he can meet someone with his type of condition so that he can relate and be encouraged as we still cannot believe that this is happening. I will keep
you posted tomorrow as he gets his treatment plan and what the doctor says. ❤️❤️💕💕😇😇😍😍 Thank you Davis family Jim loves his family!!!!
Hi Jimmy Ray,
This is your cousin Tom Davis from Glenwood Iowa. I heard about your carcinoid tumor. Be strong and never give up. You are in my prayers. Just to tell you a little story when we were kids and you and your family visited us in Omaha. One day I was going to walk
to the store to get some candy (I was a little fat kid) and you wanted to go with me. So we took off and you wanted to take the short cut down the alley next to the cemetery, but I said no because of kids that bully me when I took that way. I wanted to take
the long way. You refuse and we went down the alley. Sure enough the kid was there and you confronted him and just reasoned with him and everything was cool. On are walk back from the store you told me you should never run from your problems but to confront
them. Most likely it is just a misunderstanding. That stuck with me and I use that to this day in my work and personal life. Be strong Jimmy Ray and I wish you and your family the best. Here is a picture of me today. I will send one of me when I was a kid
around that age when we took that walk and picture of my family.
Tom and Cindy Bolinger
We will keep you in our prayers. We are glad to see all the support you are getting...Keep the faith...Nothing is impossible. Love and good cheer.
Sorry to hear of your situation...I am not surprised that you found a way to make something positive out of this...you are in my thoughts and prayers...need to get you back out on the golf course
Robin thanks for the updates. Keep them coming. Deborah and I are praying every day for you guys.
Radioactive testing Friday thru Tuesday then meet with doctor to decide the course of treatment and learn more about the tumor per tests.
We were glad to hear of your recent encouraging report, it's a tough fight; but our money is on you. You're in our thoughts and prayers.
keep on; keepin on!
"For with God nothing will be impossible."

Cyndee and Peter Williams
It takes a village to beat this crappy disease and it looks like you have an army supporting you. No doubt you will WIN!
Hi Jim - I just learned about this website today. I love it - so great to see such love and support. You deserve every bit of it!! I have thought about you so much since your original message about your "Tummy ache"....and then your follow up email about
I wish you happy thoughts - every day!
I wish you love and hugs always!
I wish you very positive results with the treatment plan you (and all involved) have planned.
And, I wish you to come back to work. :-)
OK....the last one is a very selfish "wish" but I wish for you to come back to work because I/WE MISS YOU!! :-) This - ONLY if/when you are able to come back, of course!!
Jim flew to AZ and they forgot to order the drug they were supposed to try, so, he will fly home tonite and fly back for Friday thru Wednesday and hopefully will begin his treatment.
Hey Cousin! You are in my prayers!!! From Omaha, Nebraska
Aunt Rosemarie & Uncle Jim Davis
Jim & Robin; You are both in our prayers every day!
Jim - We are with you in this fight and think of you everyday here at OtterBox. Your positive attitude and determination will take you far. Keep us posted.
Jim, Our thoughts and prayers are with you daily. You WILL beat this! Faith, Family and Friends will give you the strength and support to get you through. It is Hammer Time! Stay strong my friend!
You have a big family at FedEx supporting you through this journey. May God continue to bless and guide you and your family. Keep up that great sense of humor you have!! Laughter is a great medicine!
We are praying for you and your family!
Dear Jim, praying deeply for healing and comfort for you and your family. Calling on St Nektarios, patron saint for cancer patients, to be with you. His monastery in Greece is a place of healing; my family has visited. Sending positive thoughts to add
to yours, and multiply this power of healing being sent by all.
Jim - keep your good humor no matter what. It's the best medicine. You have always brought joy to others with it, I hope now it helps keep you company
If you would like to learn more about this cancer carcinoid.org is very good at explaining things.
Sharon and Bill Kazel
We add our love and good thoughts to everyone's. When you get back (and we get back from our trip) I will deliver hugs in person. Meanwhile we'll deliver some Imperial. XXXOOO
Rick and Donna Carter
So good to hear how strong you sound. You're fortunate to be working with the CTCA/PHX -- they are the best there is. You are in our thoughts every day - thanks for keeping us in the loop.
You don’t know how much I appreciate all your love and support.
What a roller coaster ride. We are still in shock with the diagnostic of a 5.9 cm carcinoid tumor of the pancreas which has spread to the liver. The Good news:
• I’m still here. If this was carcinoma the story would be different. I am lucky to have a slower growing tumor than carcinoma. Less than 5% of all pancreas tumors are NET (what I have). We are trying to figure out how fast this grows but won’t know for months.
I have no baseline.
• Working for FedEx gave me the ability to choose hospitals. We decided with Cancer Treatment Center of America/ PHX. CU Med was considered but CTCA is equally talented & much smaller with multiple support groups.
With NET, it is only treatable, not curable. We have multiple choices on how aggressive I want to be. With it being stage 4, surgery is out. We are reading up with the choices with success to slow or reverse the growth. We think we will do Afinitor and Sinutib.
If this doesn’t work we will need to get more aggressive.
I do more outpatient tests in PHX next week. I am feeling good, ready for battle!
Jim and Robin,
My prayers for you and warm thoughts of your kindness and respect occupy me daily. Hoping you find an optimal treatment plan, either in AZ or CO. If I can help in anyway (SW points?) please let me know. God Bless You !!
It is amazing that we have all of you supporting us through this tough time. I am so lucky to have met this strong man I've been married to for 32 yrs. that so many love, and to have his 3 beautiful children and spouses and 3 grandchildren (so far). We
appreciate your love and support and fond memories, faces and names we haven't seen but know are there. We have met with the AZ. Team and really are impressed with their methods of treatment, however, we want to see what CU doctors say tomorrow. We will keep
you all informed of the path we decide to take soon.😘😍❤️ Thank you family and friends and team Fed Ex

Dear Jim (& the whole Burhorn family),
I just got word of your plight and even though I am, of course, concerned for your health, I know that you will beat this. I will never forget how you attended Scott at his birth, saying "c'mon big guy", holding him in your arms. Now you have all of your friends
and family doing the same; We are holding you in our arms saying "C'mon Big Guy, Beat This."

Jim, you are one of the funniest guys I know! Thank you for your laughter and your fine sense of humor... you are a Seinfeld season rolled into one man. Keep laughing #funny #jimstrong.
Prayers and good thoughts to you.
From Marc, the neighbor across the street from your parents. You have an army of supporters on your side and I am glad to join such a great group of people. On 5/28 I am going to a Wings of Hope fundraiser in Lone Tree. That organization supports Pancreatic
cancer research at CU Medical Center. Fight hard, you shall prevail.

Tuesday May 26th at 1:00 meeting with the Oncologist at Cancer Center of America Dr. Jason Niu for a treatment plan and hope to go to CU hospital on Thursday.
I know what your family is going thru as my baby sister is fighting this same fight against cancer you are. Let your friends, family and FedEx family help you fight. No one fights along - your fight is our fight. You are in my thoughts my friend…..
Hey Bud… We’ve all got you back in this fight and are funneling our collective mojo, strength and energy in your direction. You have an incredible family and group of friends and we are all here for you every step of the way. I’m looking forward to our
sitting on the beach with our toes in the sand and a cold cerveza in our hands after you’ve beaten this. Hang in there and godspeed to a quick recovery and return home.
I'm so glad to see all the support from friends, family and Team FIT. Wishing you all the best Jim. Keep fighting my friend, we all want you back on the field!
We are all praying for you here and we know you will come back from this stronger than ever.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Jim. You will NEVER be alone. Fight, Fight, Fight!!
Sending prayers your way. May God put his hands on the both of you and walk you thru this. Blessings to you both.
Donna and Rick
To all our dear friends and friends at Fed Ex and our loving family we are sad to say the diagnosis is Stage 4 because it has spread to the liver, although, the growths on the liver are in the beginning stages of cancer and not advanced. Now we will go
meet the team of Oncologists and other doctors to listen to the plan. We will also see what CU hospital top doctors also say.
We are hoping for surgery (Whipple) (laparoscopic) vs. a total Whipple but they are not sure if he is a candidate for that yet. I'm sure they have to check with a PET scan to check lymph nodes. Thank you for your prayers! I don't know if we are in shock but
We feel at peace with this and have turned this over to the hands of the Lord and the Doctors. I will keep everyone posted on this email as we have not figured out why the Blog isn't working!
Calls and visiting would be great now as the next few months we may not be around.
Jim our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.
Jim our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. The European FedEx team are fighting with you to beat this.
To- "The most interesting man in the world" AKA Mr. Most:
Wishing you strength and may God put his hands around you and your family.

. Keep fighting Jim, A prayer for you from Ireland - its the Lords Prayer....
Ár n-Athair atá ar neamh,
Go naofar d'ainim,
Go dtagfadh do ríocht,
Go ndéantar do thoil ar an talamh mar a dhéantar ar neamh.
Ár n-arán laethúil tabhair dúinn inniu,
agus maith dúinn ár bhfiacha
mar a mhaithimidne dár bhféichiúna féin
Ach ná lig sinn i gcathú,
ach saor sinn ó olc,
Jim (Most), Team FIT works hard, plays hard, but prays even harder when one of our teammates needs help. We are here for you. May you feel HIS warm and confident embrace when you need it most. Peace, Dave
Thanks for sharing this journey Jim. Tough situation and see a lot of love and support in the pictures and posts.
Wishing you 'the Most' in prayers and luck.
Tom and Meaghan Read
For now, just waiting until we take another trip to Mountain View to close some deals - sending support along the way!
Hi Jim. I became aware of your situation rather by accident through your son on FB. I live in Brookings Oregon and am a 4+ year survivor of pancreatic cancer. I know how hard this is. If I could give one piece of advise to you it would be this...absolutely
and totally ignore any and all information regarding "statistics". Put it out of your thought process entirely. You are not them. I told myself "if even one can survive, I can survive" . You can be that one. I hope all the best for you and your beautiful family.
Rick and Donna Carter
We love you Jim, you will beat this.
Sharon and Bill Kazel
Dear Jim, keep fighting! I look forward to your strong come back!!!!
You and your family are in my prayers
Jim A.K.A. Billie, We've know each other 35 yrs & many more years will be added to that. With our prayers & your positive attitude & mental toughness, this will be similar to your kidney situation many moons ago!
Hey Jim, We had a great time seeing you and your family at Scott's wedding. We are thinking about you guys and sending positive vibes your way. All the best!
Jim & Cindy Whitson
Hi, Jim, Robin & family -- Thanks to Facebook we have watched the two of you raise (and expand) a wonderful family who will be there with you now to get you through this (and remembering how strong and determined you are we have no doubt you will kick
this). Thought this photo might put a smile on your face, had to dig for it for quite a while !! Loving thoughts to all of you -- Jim & Cindy
So many fond memories. You show people respect and kindness. You're in my prayers.
Dorothy & Frank
I have known you and your family since 1960, you have a strong family and great support in them. I will praying for all of you.
Hey, buddy. Wishing you the best. Now it's your turn to not be nice! Fight fight fight.
Dwight & Suzie Altenburg
Jim I remember you coming over to our house when we lived in Scottsdale and you dunking on our 7 ft rim. You were a fun dude and I looked up to you. You made my dads day a few times especially when you flew in for his 25 year celebration for working for
Airbourne Express. I wish you well with conquering this!
Dwight and Suzie Altenburg
Hey my friend, Suzie and I are with you in this challenge and sending our love. Here is a small quote author unknown: " The nicest place to be is in someone's thoughts, The safest place to be is in someone's prayers, and the very best place to be is....
In the hands of God. " We know your being watched over as much as his eye is on the sparrow.
Love ya Jim!
