Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer

November is slowly approaching and that only means one thing...it's Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month! We will once again be participating in Purple Stride New Jersey 2018. This walk raises money to support the Pancreatic Action Network (PANCAN), an organization that is near and dear to my heart. By making a donation and/or participating in the walk, you are supporting our efforts to double the survival rate by 2020!
PurpleStride is one of the signature awareness events for PANCAN and every dollar given or raised, improves the lives of patients fighting pancreatic cancer. The walk will also draw awareness to the cause, all while having a great time. Did you know that currently there are no early detection tools? Furthermore, symptoms are often vague and inconclusive which makes diagnosing someone often difficult. What's even scarier is that pancreatic cancer is labeled as one of the deadliest cancers with a survival rate of ONLY NINE PERCENT.
As scary as these statistics are to me, it's now fueling my fire to continue to fight and kick cancer's butt! Many of you have already been generious and gracious with your time, money, and support for me and my family, and we couldn't be more grateful. I hope you can join us again on November 11th, 2018 for PurpleStride New Jersey 5K at the Mack Cali Campus in Parsippany, NJ.

Hope to see you there with your purple gear!
