Ted -

So far as I have been able to uncover, there are only three medically
documented instances of spontaneous regression/remission of pancreatic
cancer. (See for example ) Perhaps
your friend's wife was another of the unreported cases. Doctors
haven't delved into the wherefores of such turnarounds, and medical
researchers are only now beginning to, but you're right -- I'd be
prepared to call such a thing a miracle.
