I created this team for my Dad, Sylvain, who we lost to pancreatic cancer a few months ago. This June, we walked in PurpleStride and raised nearly $20,000! I will not allow his death to be in vain! So, I want to continue fundraising in his honor for the 2019 walk.
Pancreatic cancer only has a 9% survival rate. This is just unacceptable. One of the main reasons for this is that its underfunded and not researched enough. I initially made the team goal $5,800 because 58 is the age my Dad doesn't get to see because of this terrible disease. But, I've already surpassed that! Thank you all for the wonderful donations! Now, my new goal is $10,000!
My Dad participated in a clinical trial that is working to help find better treatments for pancreatic cancer. So, even in his death, my Dad is helping others. Please join my Dad in helping others by donating to find a cure.
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?
