Team Edgeis raising money in support of thePancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in this year’s PurpleStride 5k Walk/Run event on Saturday, May 4th, 2019.
Our organization (The Edgerton.Life Pancreatic Cancer Foundation) was founded to continue the legacy and the fight of our lost Friend, Brother, Warrior, Son; Andrew F. Edgerton.
For two years, Andy devoted himself to educating others about pancreatic cancer by shining the spotlight on his own story. In October 2017, just 16 hours from his 40th birthday, Andy passed away. Andy was diagnosed with stage 4 in November 2015 and was given just months to live, he fought relentlessly for nearly 2 years.
Andy lived out loud. His light and love knew no bounds. He was a force of nature that stood out. Whether advocating for others, offering advice, or simply being a friend, he navigated his entire life by waging hope and demanding better. We must continue Andy’s fight to wage war against this horrific cancer by raising awareness and funding to aid in its detection, treatment, research, and CURE.
“PurpleStride is truly an every dollar helps kind of thing. The vast majority of any money raised goes to clinical trials and research. For perspective..., the two drugs, including chemo, that I was using were discovered through clinical trials funded by people like YOU. My pride gets hit a bit when I ask for anything but I NEED YOUR HELP. I need your help to help the millions who have my cancer. I need your help to help the millions who don't know what to do.
Thank you in advance and humbly yours.– Edge” (paraphrased from 2017)
