My father, Rev. Homer E. Jones was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer in May 2016. I wanted to do something to fight Pancreatic Cancer and my wife and I decided to participate in PurpleStride Philadelphia 2016. My father passed away on June 27, 2017. I stated at his funeral that we must continue the fight so that other families hopefully will not have to go through the pain that my family is currently experiencing.
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination.
