On July 11, 2018 my beautiful mom, "Marvlus" Marvelene lost her battle with Pancreatic cancer. She fought courageously for 3 years. Now, it is our turn to fight courageously to raise awareness and find a cure.
Pancreatic cancer is grossly underdiagnosed and many times not caught until it has metastasized to other organs. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. While overall cancer incidence and death rates are declining, the incidence and death rates for pancreatic cancer are increasing. It is essential that we raise awareness of this disease and raise funds to ensure earlier detection and more effective treatments.
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.
****We will be putting together a fundraiser team shirt with names of loved ones who are survivors or lost their battle with pancreatic cancer. If you have a loved one you would like remembered please pm me on Facebook***
