Welcome to My Personal Page
As many of you know, pancreatic cancer hits close to home for my family – my dad was diagnosed with the disease in February of last year and passed away in September. For those that are not familiar, pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death, largely due to the fact that it is so difficult to detect. Frequently, symptoms do not show until Stage IV, at which time the median life span is a mere 3.5 months. The NYC PurpleStride and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network are determined to change that through research breakthroughs, additional treatment options and increased national dialogue for the disease.
