Welcome to My Personal Page

My name is Bonnie, and I began my war with pancreatic cancer in 2013, when my 'honorary" little-sister, Alyson Goodwin, was diagnosed.

She was always a fighting spirit, and it was no surprise that she lived for 31 months, vowing to help others by participating in clinical trials even if she didn't find the "magic bullet" for herself. She learned that “survival is only measured in months,” and she then became a beacon of encouragement and support for other survivors with tips new discoveries that she had learned. She taught us how to give support, and for this reason the name of our team is "Alyson's Legacy."
When Alyson was diagnosed, the 5-year survival rate was just 6%. Since then new treatment options have increased it 11%, but we are in a race. The number of new pancreatic cancer cases is also increasing, and it is still the 3rd deadliest of all cancers! We can change that direction if we find a tool to diagnose it in earlier stages. That would change everything!
So today, I ask for a donation, even if it is only $5. Because 93% of our donations funnel research, I have learned that by spreading just awareness, or donating, one can help save a life! If you can then please share this with others, and give them the opportunity to help too. Let's win this race, and give those of us who will encounter this disease a better way to beat it. 
Thank you so much.
