Trudy's Tribe was founded in 2014 in honor of Trudy Andrews, who so bravely fought pancreatic cancer. She was diagnosed in Jan 2014, and despite the very early detection (stage 1), she lost her battle with this horrible disease just 9 short months later on October 22, 2014. She was a HERO in the fight against pancreatic cancer!
In light of the bleak survival statistics, The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network has established a bold initiative -- To double the pancreatic cancer survival rate by the year 2020! They are pressing ahead with a comprehensive approach to fighting the disease: advancing research, building and sustaining federal support, providing information and education for patients and families living with the disease, and raising awareness of the devastating impact of pancreatic cancer. Your donation to the Purple Stride will help The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network turn that goal into a reality!
