On November 27, theevening before Thanksgiving, our family was forever changed. That was the nightwe learned of my father's diagnosis. Although we didn'tquite know the details or seriousness of his diagnosis that night, more testsneeded to follow, we knew we the ugliness of this disease and knew an uphillbattle lay ahead.


Our family quicklyjumped into action. My sister, Melissa, hopped on a red-eye flight fromCalifornia only a couple of hours after learning the news by phone and was inBoston early Thanksgiving morning. We let the news settle a bit that day,knowing it was a holiday and not much we could do, and spent the entire daytogether as a family. The days and weeks to follow were filled with numerousdoctor appointments and tests. It was scary, trying, emotional and draining aswe learned more about his diagnosis and the little options we had.


Today my fathercontinues to fight for his life. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rateof all major cancers, at just 10%. This deadly disease has stolen the lives ofmany, but it can't take away our determination and that is one thing my father hasalways been - determined.


Together, in love,my family and I will hit the streets and walk to do what we can to wage hopeand help to end pancreatic cancer.



We your generosityand all you are able to do to help us in this fight.
