Each year for my Interdisciplinary Health Psychology course at the New York City College of Technology, my students and I participate in fundraising and walking for a cause. In October we raised over $500 for the American Heart Association in Brooklyn, and this Spring we're doing the same for Pancreatic Cancer, by raising funds and walking in Prospect Park this April. I have the privilege of choosing the causes over the year, and this particular cancer took my grandmother in a very rapid amount of time. As a health psychologist and family member, I know all too well the impact this disease has on our lives. Please consider donating and reading more about Pancreatic Cancer and this walk, below:
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination.
Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer.Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?
Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating to our team, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020.
Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
