In February 2015 I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. The journey was long and was hard fought. The support was beyond words. If not for my amazing oncologist, Dr. Picozzi, my family and my friends I wouldn’t be here to walk in my 5th Purple Stride! I am eternally grateful to all of you.
I know I am asking for more from all of you, but this time it is for all those still fighting the battle that I fought and won.
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. That is such an incredibly staggering number! This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but we can’t let it take away our determination. Research is desperately needed and any support helps!
My team, Just Beat It, is once again supporting PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. I would love to have you join us in the walk! If you are unable to join us the site does give you an option to make a donation.
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.
