THE STORY:

Hi, my name is Addison Earnest, I just turned 14, and am delighted to say that 2017 will be my 3rd year running for Project Purple in the Lincoln half Marathon. Project Purple gave me the opportunity to honor my Mom, Lynette Earnest, who passed away just over 2 years ago from colon cancer at only 47 years old, and also to benefit cancer research and the people who are battling this terrible disease.  Most everyone probably knows at least one person who is fighting or who has lost their lives to cancer, so your help would be greatly appreciated in helping me to reach, or even exceed my fundraising goals! This year, not only am I running in memory of my Mother, but I would like to include my Grandma Cheryl Davis who we recently lost to cancer,  Vernon Schmale who is Father/Grandfather to some good family friends, The Tallon’s. Vernon just lost his battle with pancreatic cancer this February. Also always in my thoughts is my friend Elli Erickson who lost her Mother Sharon a few years ago, and her Father Gary just last summer, both to pancreatic cancer.  Thank you for reading this and for your support. I’M RUNNING FOR A CURE!

PROJECT PURPLE wrote -

This year pancreatic cancer surpassed breast cancer and became the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. It is more important than ever that we continue to work hard towards reversing this trend.

Our mission at Project Purple is to find a cure for pancreatic cancer and to improve the lives of patients through support, hope and compassion. The money raised for Project Purple helps us fulfill our mission statement by funding several crucial programs.

Project Purple provides funding for critical pancreatic cancer research. Thanks to our donors we are helping fund research for an early detection test for pancreatic cancer. There is currently no form of early detection for this deadly form of cancer. The best odds at survival come when the disease is caught in its earliest stages. We also fund studies which seek effective methods to treat this deadly disease. Finally, we offer grants to graduate students who are pursuing a career in pancreatic cancer research.

We at Project Purple also recognize there are patients who are fighting pancreatic cancer right now and they need our help. Project Purple assists current patients through our Patient Financial Aid program. We also provide patients with Blankets of Hope Care Bags. We believe no one should this battle on their own.

Though the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer stands at just 9%, we know that with your help we can make our vision of a world without pancreatic cancer a reality!
