Welcome to Alison Takacs' Personal Page
Why is my goal $5900 this year? Because PurpleStride 2020 falls on what should be Jim's 59th birthday.
has now been 11 years since my incredibly healthy, 47 y.o. husband was taken
from us, in just 6 1/2 months, by pancreatic cancer. While we have seen the
survival rate rise from 6% to a still-dismal 9% in the past few years, we also
saw pancreatic cancer rise to the #3 cancer killer in our country in 2016.
Having advocated on Capitol Hill for years, we can tell you one thing --
funding=survival, as is evidenced by all of the cancers that have seen such
success in detecting and treating their diseases. While we continue to storm DC
and keep our government on task, we know that much of the money needed to fund
life-saving research falls upon private donors. We thank all of those who support
us!! Please take a moment to click on our video link to see the life of the man
we honor with our advocacy work.
By making a donation to me, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020.
Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!
