THE STORY:

In loving memory of my grandmother, who lost her battle against pancreatic cancer over 15 years ago but will not be forgotten. The picture is my grandmother with my grandfather beamed in from the wayback machine.

I am excited to run my second marathon and raise funds once again for Project Purple. Please considered donating or at very least spread the word of the great things done in the battle against pancreatic cancer.

Our team will be running to support our three programs, listed below.

Research

In the last four years, our charity has provided $500K in grants to top medical centers specializing in the study of pancreatic cancer. We have carefully selected institutions based on the quality of their work and their researchers. Recipients include Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Tufts Medical Center, University of Nebraska Medical Center, NYU, and Columbia. Grants have also been awarded to postdoctoral students and professional researchers, to support studies in early detection methods, a cure, and a better understanding of the mysterious and deadly disease.

 

Patient Financial Aid

Project Purple helps support families and individuals dealing with the financial burden of pancreatic cancer. Patients who are currently battling are given support with medical bills, living expenses, and travel. We also give care packages to patients to provide comfort during hospital visits.

 

Scholarships

For the past three years, Project Purple has helped undergraduate, graduate, and nursing students achieve their academic goals by providing scholarships. These awards are given to bright, passionate students whose lives have been adversely affected by pancreatic cancer. Many have lost parents or other close relatives to the disease, other had the disease themselves. 

For more information about these programs and what you can do to help support our mission, visit us online at www.run4projectpurple.org. You can also find us on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
