Friends, pancreatic cancer is a wicked illness. It sneaks up and as fast as it goes, it doesn't go easily. We need a better way to find it early. We need a better strategy overall for confronting cancer of all kinds. We need more money going to dogged and creative researchers. I'm committing to this walk to raise my circle's awareness of the illness and to raise some money to break into a real solution. That's what it takes.
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. Only about half of people diagnosed with it will survive the first year. My mom had only weeks. I know some of you have a similar story about someone you love. I've heard a few of those stories. I walk for you and yours, too.
