THE STORY:

Project Purple's mission: to beat pancreatic cancer. 

I hate running almost as much as I hate cancer! But as much as I hate both, even more, I hate thinking of turning down an opportunity to help prevent someone else from experiencing the indescribable pain that my family has witnessed and endured.

With the help of some amazing friends and family, I did it once, I can do it agian!  This year, my brother will be joining me along the trail. 

With funds raised from running, Project Purple has provided funds for research and support for patients and families that face Pancreatic Cancer. Research for not only a cure, but pain management that allows patients to be 'present' as they fight the battle of their lives. Please consider donating.

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.
