Welcome to the team page in memory of Jill Wilcox. Jill was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer October 23, 2009 & passed away July 3, 2010. At that time she left behind 3 kids & 7 grandkids, with 3 more grandkids born after this disease took her life. It is heart breaking to watch a family go through the death of a loved one to cancer. This cancer in particular has such terrible odds! We felt defeated from the moment she was diagnosed. With only a 6% chance at 5 year survival in 2009. It was devastating! I am happy to say that since 2009 the odds have been increased to 10%! Our volunteer efforts are working, but there is more work to be done! 10% is not enough! It is too late for Jill, but our future generations are counting on us to make a difference!
Please join Jill's family on Saturday May 2nd to walk or run in her memory! If you're not able to attend the walk then please think about making a donation to the team page! Every penny helps & every volunteer counts!
