Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer

My beautiful mother, Irma Tavares, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the fall of 2014. After multiple procedures and treatments, she lived almost 2 years free of any cancer and lived her life to the fullest. Sadly, the cancer returned in winter of 2016. She fought, but passed in August of of 2017. She fought the good fight, and now it's time we fight for her. It is unacceptable that incidents of pancreatic cancer climb while it's survival rate remains so low. Please join me in helping end the pain of this horrible disease.

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.
