Three and a half years ago my family lost my dad to pancreatic cancer. The diagnosis came out of nowhere, and three months later he was gone. Our family hasn’t been whole since. Today we find ourselves fighting every day to accept our new reality, and once a year at purple stride we fight for the day when no one else has to lose their loved one to this disease. Unfortunately we had to miss the Denver event this year, so I am bringing it to my home of Seattle instead.
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This is improving every year, but it’s not improving fast enough.
