Our "Coach" was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in December of 2016. In February of 2017 Coach had the whipple procedure to remove the tumor and had months of treatments. Fortunately, the symptoms presented early which allowed for an early stage diagnosis and surgery. Sadly this is not the case for most diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. This cancer is one of the most difficult to treat so early diagnosis is critical. Team Coach for the Cure walks to bring awareness. We walk to stand behind all the survivors, those currently fighting this awful disease and honor those no longer with us. Coach just had his 6 year check up and continues to be healthy and we are beyond grateful! Please consider donating so more people affected can have positive outcomes like coach!
Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at Purple Stride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 10%. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today? Please consider donating to Team Coach for the Cure.
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.
