THE STORY:

Did you know that pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly types of cancer -- with only a 6% survival rate after 5 years? Yet, pancreatic cancer only receives approximately 5% of the funds allocated by the government for cancer research. 

 

As part of my focus for my 35th year -- to work toward causes greater than myself -- I can't help but feel drawn to the cause of raising awareness and funds to defeat pancreatic cancer. That is why I have joined Project Purple. 

 

Project Purple's primary mission is to support the vital research of doctors in the top pancreatic cancer facilities in the country. In addition, Project Purple also provides financial aid to patients currently battling pancreatic cancer, assisting them with their medical, pharmaceutical, and everyday living expenses. Finally, PP provides scholarship opportunities to students whose lives have been touched by pancreatic cancer. These scholarships are awarded from undergraduate freshmen to graduate students  in nursing programs and many others. 

 

Running has been a gift in my life and has given me so much. I am thankful each time I lace up my shoes for having the health and opportunity to run, to do something that I love so much. I am careful not to take that for granted, knowing that there are others who are not as fortunate, are battling terrible diseases, fighting for their life while I fight for the next mile. Running has literally changed my life and it is the platform through which I hope to be able to help others as well. 

 

I will be training through the winter and running the Lincoln National Guard Marathon on May 7, 2017 to benefit Project Purple and help raise funds for their continued efforts to battle pancreatic cancer. 

 

Would you be willing to sponsor me for $1 per mile as I run the marathon for Project Purple, for a total donation of $26.20?
