Welcome to Vanessa's Pancreatic Cancer Research Fundraising Page!

Hello friends and family!

I am organizing my family's participation in the 2023 Pancreatic Cancer PurpleStride Walk in April.

As many of you know, this cause is important to my family.  We lost our father, Ivan Levy, to this disease 2 years ago.  Pancreatic cancer has some of the worst mortality rates of all cancers because it is so often undetected until it has already metastasized beyond treatment.  Even the lucky ones like my father who catch it early often have little real options for a cure; the 5-year survivorship rate for pancreatic cancer is only 11% in the US.  More research and awareness about pancreatic cancer is crucially needed for patients and families all around the world.

Here's where I am asking for your help: Not only will my family participate in the walk this April, we have also set a fundraising goal.  All of the money we raise will go directly to pancreatic cancer research, patient services, advocacy for federal funding, and awareness for this terrible disease.  Please consider a donation of any size to help pancreatic cancer research and end pancreatic cancer!

Thank you for your support and consideration!
