Melissa M.M. Law was my mom and my best friend. I join PurpleStride every year in her memory and raise money for pancreatic cancer research in hope that some kind of early detection will be discovered, which will increase the survival rate of this horrific disease. My mom was the last person anyone would have guessed would die early in life (She was 53 years old). She seemed like the healthiest person you’ve ever met, certainly the most energetic. It’s just one of those awful diseases that we don’t know enough about. That’s why we need to fund the research. Thank you all so much for taking the time and consideration to join or donate. It really means the world to me.
