    Miss you Dad!

Waging Hope for a Better Future

Help Michele raise $2,020.00

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.
