THE STORY:

  Welcome to my fundraising page for Project Purple!  Project Purple’s goal is to BEAT PANCREATIC CANCER by participating in road races all over the world.  I’m running on behalf of my mom, Patti Swoboda, and all sufferers of pancreatic cancer everywhere. This will be my 2nd time running a half marathon, and I am doing it to raise funds for this awesome organization.   For those of you who don’t know, my mom, Patti Swoboda, an otherwise healthy 54-year old woman, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just before Christmas in 2012.  When we found out the diagnosis, we were absolutely devastated.  I immediately jumped on the computer and started researching.  The more I read, the more devastated I became.  Let’s just say, her chances were not very good.  We were very worried that that Christmas would be our last with her.  In January 2013, my mom had her entire pancreas removed, making her an instant diabetic.  The recovery was grueling, but I am beyond happy to report that 4 years later, she remains CANCER FREE!  It is an amazing and very rare story with this deadly disease.  No amount of money can save you from this cancer.  What money CAN do is help find a cure – and that has been my mission since Mom was diagnosed.  We had some exciting news this year – the 5-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer has increased to 9% after flat-lining at 5% for decades. It is amazing and tangible evidence that all this fundraising I bug you about every year really DOES make a difference!! I am excited to once again be a part of this team, and I hope that you will support me in my endeavor!  Cheer me on and help raise money for this wonderful cause! For more info on what Project Purple does, keep reading.... 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.
