Wage Hope at PurpleStride. The walk to end pancreatic cancer.
Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer
My dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2011. Luckily, he survived. Unfortunately, not many people can say the same. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at 10%. Pancreatic cancer is frequently extremely difficult to diagnose. There are no specific, cost effective screening tests that can easily and reliably find early-stage pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is working to change that as one of the leading advocacy and funding organizations for pancreatic cancer research.
This year, I'm asking you to join me at the walk or donate what you can, instead of getting me a gift or buying me a drink for my birthday.
