With a grateful heart and feeling very blessed, I am once again raising funds for Purple Stride Indianapolis in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. In 2011 when Joan and I first walked in Purple Stride Indianapolis, I had little hope that I would be here in 2019! At that time, the 5-year survival rate for those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer was just 5%. Today that has risen to 9%, but there is much work still to be done. Pancreatic cancer has moved up to the position of the No. 3 leading cause of cancer-related death, and it is predicted to become the No. 2 leading cause around 2020. In the last 8 years, I have talked with numerous individuals diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and lost a brother-in-law to this dreadful disease in 2015. I have tried to give hope and support to those fighting this disease. And that is what your donations accomplish as well. Your support gives me hope that research will continue in the causes and treatments for pancreatic cancer. My life and many others may depend on it!
We will be walking on June 15 and invite you to join us for that Saturday morning in downtown Indianapolis. Click below on JOIN THIS TEAM if you can walk with us. If you can't walk with us, we welcome your donation by clicking on DONATE above. By making a donation to our team, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020.
Please make a donation today to Team Nicolet and help us reach our fundraising goal!
