THE STORY:

Cancer stinks big time, and when I heard that there was a team I could join to help raise awareness and funds to help beat pancreatic cancer, I was all in! I became aware of this team, Project Purple, through the LifeTime Running Club in Omaha. I was inspired by one of the members of this running club, Elli, who lost her mom to pancreaticc cancer, and now her dad has this very same diagnosis. 

How will the runners of the Project Purple team raise awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer? By running, of course!! We are registered to participate in the Lincoln Marathon and Half Marathon on May 1, 2016! And I need your help! Please consider making a monetary donation so that I can reach my goal of $500, which will be combined with all of the other Project Purple donations and given to help support families who have been affected and research for a cure!

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.
