#WAGEHOPE

After a successful Whipple surgery that February from his team at Johns Hopkins, along with an immunotherapy clinical trial and advanced cyber-knife radiation, THAT June Ed was proudly wearing one of the far-too-rare white SURVIVOR shirts at the Washington, DC Purple Stride - ONE WEEK out of the hospital. Over the next two years he continued his fight as the cancer returned, trying every treatment possible including proton radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Ed was a three-time Purple Stride participant, between DC and Maryland, proudly wearing his SURVIVOR gear at each race.

Throughout his battle, Ed made no excuses and was a Purple Stride PARTICIPANT at each one he attended. If you are unable to Stride with us, we ask that you contribute towards our goal as we participate on Ed's behalf. PANCAN is a resourceful and determined organization. Please read their message below. As an organization, PANCAN has a 4-Star (out of 4) rating from Charity Navigator; the dollars go to the mission.

----------

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 10%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. 

Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
