Welcome to Steve Dan's Fundraising page
The stats suck...pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States and has one of the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9% in 5 years. This deadly disease is now aiming for me and I'm going to fight this tumor ( that I've named Newman ) and do everything in my power to beat this. But I could use a little help from my friends. I'm raising money to help this organization, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, lobby Congress for more funding for research (some of which is done by the National Institutes of Health/ National Cancer Institute), develop new immunotherapy clinical trials to find a cure for pancreatic cancer, and provide critical information for patients and caregivers trying to make sense of a new diagnosis and for others to read the latest research into this cancer, the toughest one to fight.
I’ve created a team to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help by joining us in the walk or if you are unable, by making a donation?
Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating today, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020 and possibly help save many people's lives, including mine.
Please join me in the fight today - the walk is March 9th. Join us if you can. Thank You
