Mary “Winnie” Harris Freeman was called home on November 4, 2012 after a brief, but courageous, battle with pancreatic cancer.She was the most caring, loving, and vivacious wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. From that day forward, my family and I decided to join the fight against pancreatic cancer!We vowed to do our part to spread awareness and raise funds for its research.
Did you know that more than 48,900 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year? The five-year relative survival rate is just 7%, and we recently learned that pancreatic cancer is anticipated to move from the FOURTH to the SECOND leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. by 2020. We can change these statistics. Would you please join Winnie's Walkers in this gigantic effort?
