I felt helpless and sad. My father and my mother have both passed after suffering with Pancreatic Cancer. I have heard people say that it is often more difficult for the family than it is for the patient and I believe that could be true to some extent. I could do nothing to remove the suffering and pain. I decided instead to become affiliated with some group who can do something to provide care, comfort and support. I chose Project Purple.
I am running for Project Purple in the Cascade Crest 100 Mile Race on August 29-30 - which happens fall on what would have been my mother's 71 birthday. I am trying to raise money to help this organization with their support of research and support. Help me make a difference. Help Project Purple. Help support treatment, research and prevention of Pancreatic Cancer.
Thank You. Happy Trails.
