It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since we lost Uncle Joel to pancreatic cancer. It feels like just yesterday he was in the kitchen with us cooking up some tasty food and chatting about the Ravens. Every October we get together to remember him and to raise money for pancreatic cancer research. Since this is the 10th PurpleStride we've participated in, we want to make this our best turnout yet. Please join our team and put Sunday October 6, 2019 on your calendar!
Major strides are finally being made in pancreatic cancer research and the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer hit 9% last year, almost double the 5% rate from just five years ago. We need to keep raising funds so we can continue to see this kind of progress. Check out this article from the University of Michigan on some of the progress being made and how immunotherapy could revolutionize the future: https://labblog.uofmhealth.org/industry-dx/major-strides-pancreatic-cancer-give-actual-reasons-for-hope
