BENEFITING: PANCREATIC CANCER ACTION NETWORK INC

EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2012

Katherine Gerber

THE STORY:

Pancreatic cancer has affected too many people I care about. Ed Clark was one of those people, and because he helped create the activist that I am, I am fighting back against this ugly disease and advocating for a change in the way we allocate cancer research dollars.

Ed's beautiful daughter Bida, our friend Becky, and I (and a bunch of other awesome people!) are running the National Half Marathon on March 17th, and we'd love it if you contributed to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to help us reach our team fundraising goal of $3,000.

It's time that we put more energy towards raising funds for comprehensive private research and advocating for dedicated federal research to advance early diagnostics, better treatments and greater chances of survival for pancreatic cancer patients.

As the national leader in the fight against pancreatic cancer, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is well-positioned to achieve their bold new goal to double the pancreatic cancer survival rate by 2020.

To me, pancreatic cancer is one of those things that I don't want to encounter ever again. Ever. So if you were considering sending me a card around the holidays, for Valentine's Day or for my birthday, do this instead: donate 44 cents, or better yet, $440, to this cause and send me an ecard with your donation (yes, you can do that on Crowdrise).  Or you can choose the amount that makes the most sense for you.

Thank you for your generosity.

Find out more about the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by visiting their website, www.PanCan.org.

*Also, Crowdrise is a Network for Good partner-- this is where I work!-- so you know it's trustworthy.  And you also may know that we're a social enterprise.  So when we ask for a small amount on this site to process the donation, consider it another donation to a worthy nonprofit that teaches other nonprofits how to fundraise...You'll likely spend at least $10 on a random item at a store that cares more about your dollars than they do you, so why not give $10 to an organization that cares more about you and the good you're doing?
