THE STORY:

I will be running for Project Purple in the 2014 Baltimore Marathon to raise awareness of Pancreatic Cancer and funds toward research for a cure. 

Pancreatic Cancer has a single digit survival rate after 5 years.

As the Mayo Clinic describes, "Pancreatic cancer often has a poor prognosis, even when diagnosed early. Pancreatic cancer typically spreads rapidly and is seldom detected in its early stages, which is a major reason why it's a leading cause of cancer death. Signs and symptoms may not appear until pancreatic cancer is quite advanced and complete surgical removal isn't possible." 

Project Purple is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization working to beat Pancreatic Cancer and support those affected by it in three main ways. First, it has created a scholarship program that awards high achieving college students whose lives have been adversely affected by pancreatic cancer. Secondly, Project Purple has a Patient Financial Aid Program that assists those patients who struggle with medical, pharmaceutical, and everyday living expenses related to their fight against pancreatic cancer. Lastly, Project Purple awards grant money to medical centers that specialize in pancreatic cancer research. 

Pancreatic cancer is also the least funded of the top 10 cancer killers today-- a problem you can start to amend by donating to Project Purple!
