Help Lynn raise $490.00

We are participating in PurpleStride  to raisie money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

I created the team, Nancy's Angels, in honor of my mother.  Most of you know that my mom was diagnosed in 2011 with Pancreatic Cancer.  She battled through chemotherapy and radiation, but lost her battle in December of 2012.  Working as a cancer researcher and having a loved one diagnosed with the disease are two very different situations.  I thought that working with cancer for the last decade of my life would have prepared me for what I would be facing.  I was so wrong.  Going through the process on the other side was something that I was not ready for.  It was emotionally draining and I had no control over the situation.  I hope to prevent other families from going through what my family had to go through.  Watching helplessly as  a loved one deteriorites is something that I wish on no individual or family.  By raising money and supporting research to combat this disease, I hope that we can find a way to help those who have already been diagnosed and prevent future casualties.

By making a donation to me, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020.

Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!
