Please Join us to honor the memory of my Mom and raise funds and awareness towards the fight against pancreatic cancer. We are partnering with Project Purple and they give 100% of every dollor earned to fight this horrible disease. They also provide scholarships to children of those who suffer or have suffered from PC. They help families that are struggling financially during their loved ones illness and provide grants for research to find a cure.
Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S. surpassing breast cancer. It is expected to be the 2nd leading cause of cancer related death by the year 2020.
The most alarming fact about PC is there are no early detection tests. Usually when symptoms start to occur the disease is so advanced that there is no hope for survival. That's why donations are so vital for research that could dicover early detection tests and save many lives.
If you're not a runner, come walk,visit or just enjoy some delicious food and get a pretty cool t-shirt.
Thank you for supporting such an important cause!
