Stage 4 pancreatic cancer now undetectable in Phoenix man

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --- A Phoenix man with pancreatic cancer, who was told he only had months to live, says he has been given a second chance at life.

Phil Zeblisky, a 57-year-old, says doctors at two cancer centers considered his stage four pancreatic cancer a death sentence.

"When you're given that kind of diagnosis, you need to put meaning into your life," Zeblisky told 3TV.

He enrolled in a clinical trial at the Virginia G. Piper Cancer Center, which is part of the Scottsdale Healthcare Network, thinking he could at least help the doctors there with their research.

After nearly six months of treatments, Zeblisky's cancer is undetectable on scans.

"It's amazing," Zeblisky said.
