Pancreatic cancer has had a personal impact on our family. We are participating in the Purple Stride in memory of our father, Gary Ward. Our dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December, 2017. His battle with pancreatic cancer ended quickly. He fought hard through it all! Our dad passed away on February 19, 2018. This disease hit hard and fast! We lost our grandmother to pancreatic cancer about 8 years ago. My dad was proactive when symptoms started to appear due to his family history. Despite his search for answers to the problems he was having, they were not found in time.
Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination.
Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?
Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating to our team, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020.
Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
