Dear Family and Friends,
Our team, Walking for Lynn, is proud to be participating in the PurpleStride St. Louis for the eighth year. The St. Louis Purple Stride Walk has been scheduled for Saturday, April 29, 2023. PanCan will be hosting PurpleStride walks in over sixty cities thus making the day "National PurpleStride Walk". Pancreatic cancer continues to affect thousands of patients and families every day. It is important that we continue our mission to wage hope and support efforts to raise critical resources to battle the world's toughest cancer.
Our team is raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to be used for pancreatic cancer research and patient advocacy. By making a donation to our team, you are supporting efforts to rewrite the future of this dreadful disease. Our efforts are making a difference. It was recently reported that the five year survival rate for patients with pancreatic cancer has risen to 12%. Over the past decade, the five-year survival rate has gone from 6% to 12%! Let's continue to work together to achieve Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's goal of reaching a five-year survival rate of 20% by 2030. A great deal more research must be done so a cure can be found.
Last year we were able to raise $17,348 for pancreatic cancer research and patient advocacy. This year we are hopeful we can surpass that amount. Please make a donation today, and help us reach our fundraising goal! Thank you very much!
