Welcome to Lisa's Page

I'm walking in PurpleStride to raise money to support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.  

I lost my father to pancreatic cancer in 2006, just nine months after his diagnosis.  Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers - just 9% of those diagnosed survive five years.  There are no proven biomarkers, so the vast majority of pancreatic cancer cases are diagnosed too late, and the incidence is increasing.

This organization was a huge help when Daddy was sick, and continues to provide amazing resources.  Your donation to support research, advocacy, and resources for patients and their families will be very much appreciated.  

Thank you for your support,
