NEW MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A local man we introduced you to in January who was waging a battle against pancreatic cancer has died.
Randy Heaver lost his fight against the disease at the age of 47.
Heaver is from New Middletown, and was diagnosed in September with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. It was inoperable and terminal. Heaver was given six to eight months to live.
With that time, he entered a clinical trial in hopes of helping future patients fight the aggressive form of cancer. He also became an advocate for getting regular PET scans and took a trip to California with his wife, Peggy Jo.
Heaver is survived by his wife, three sons, and a daughter.
