Did you know that pancreatic cancer is the 4th most deadly cancer, yet receives the least funding of the Top 10 cancers? Pancreatic cancer is also the only cancer of the Top 10 to have just a single digit survival rate after 5 years.
After losing both of my godparents, my Uncle Dave and Aunt Bev, to pancreatic and liver cancer earlier this year, I knew it was time to get back out there raising awareness, kicking ass-phalt, and fundraising with more dedication than ever before. This fall, I will be racing in the National Capital 20 Miler, 10k Across the Bay, and Potomac River Run Marathon.
