Waging Hope for a Better Future
Most of you seeing this page already know my story. I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer 11 years ago, after a very short 6 month battle. Since his death, I've chosen to dedicate my time and effort to this amazing organization that is committed to changing the future of pancreatic cancer. First as a local Boston Affiliate volunteer, and now today as a co-chair on the Volunteer Advisory Council, working directly with the national office helping to ensure the volunteer voice is incorporated in everything we do.
Many of you ask why I dedicate so much time to this cause. Well, honestly, it's because I truly believe that this organization is changing the course of pancreatic cancer. We have seen a rising survival rate - now at 9% over 5 years. Still far too low - but much greater than the 4% it was when I joined PanCAN.
They are creating programs that will be instrumental in finding not only effective treatments, early detection and options, but HOPE for patients. I cannot stress enough the importance of EVERY donation - no matter the amount - in making these things happen. Your donations add up to saving lives - what greater power is there?
Please join our team, share our event with someone you think might be interested or make a donation today. We MUST double survival by 2020.
