Help me to fight pancreatic cancer

Dear Family and Friends,

Pancreatic Cancer is predicted to become the second leading of cause cancer deaths before 2030. This devastating disease either has or sadly will impact you personally in some way in the past or future years. Pancreatic Action Network helped give my sister Lynn Goeddel survival over 5 years from her stage 4 diagnosis. The fight was certainly not easy for her, it took her tenacity, determination and the support of all to make it there. She asked that we continue this fight. For the first time, the 5 year survival rate has reached 10% according to the American Cancer Society's Cancer Facts and Figures 2020 report. I will not say Lynn lost her fight because she didn't lose. She finished the fight on her own terms, in her own time. She taught everyone how to fight and how to triumph over adversity, while at the same time staying true to your faith in God.
Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's goal is to drive the 5 year survival rate from 10% to 30% and to grow awareness of pancreatic cancer in the US from 14% to 30%.

Please help us as we continue our efforts to provide more support and resources for current and future patients diagnosed and battling this disease. Despite these unprecedented times Pancreatic Cancer continues to affect thousands of people daily. It is imperative that we continue to wage hope against the world's toughest cancer.

Please make a donation today by clicking on the "Donate to Celeste " button at the bottom of the letter to help me reach my personal goal and our team goal! Thank you in advance for your caring and support.
