Hi everyone and thank you for visiting my Crowdrise page!
Andy Battles A Marathon is all about helping those who are battling cancer - specifically Pancreatic Cancer. Through Project Purple, I have a goal to raise $2000 by October 1st for this incredibly important cause. I will run the 2018 Chicago Marathon as part of Team Purple to raise awareness with every step thanks to you, my donors, and for all those effected by this terrible disease.
Pancreatic Cancer is currently the deadliest of all major cancer with only a 6% survival rate after 5 years past diagnosis. It is also currently one of the least funded cancers in terms of research grants and government funding going into finding a cure - receiving only 5% of the total cancer funding annually. We can change this.
Donations go, in full, toward two focuses: The first is funding research at some of the top Pancreatic Cancer labs in the country. The second is patient financial aid, which includes medical, pharmaceutical and living expenses as well as educating those fighting Pancreatic Cancer on the latest clinical trials they could be eligible for. This duel approach gives those facing this disease all the weapons possible to win their battle.
Will you help Andy Battle A Marathon?
