Emerenciana Memorial Fund

Organized by: Barry Harvey

THE STORY:

Emerenciana Ngayan Soriano Harvey – Our mother, know as Emy or Ciana to her friends – passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 26, 2016, after a courageous and tenacious battle with pancreatic cancer. She was 64.

In lieu of flowers we are asking for donations to be made to a Memorial Fund we setting up in her name.  It is our goal to create a memorial in her honor, and also to maintain her legacy by continuing to support the charities she loved, as well as the organizations that helped her along the way during her battle with cancer.

Did you know?

- Pancreatic cancer is predicted to become the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States around 2020, second only to lung cancer.

- It is one of the few cancers for which survival has not improved substantially over the past 40 years.

- Seventy percent of pancreatic cancer patients die within the first 12 months of the diagnosis. The 5-year survival rate is only 7 percent.

- Scientific understanding of pancreatic cancer lags far behind that of most other forms of cancer. In fact, pancreatic cancer is the only one of the top 10 cancer killers in the U.S. that still has a 5-year survival rate in the single digits.

- Pancreatic cancer research funding constitutes 2 percent of the National Cancer Institute’s Federal research funding, a figure far too low given the severity of the disease, its mortality rate, and how little is known about how to arrest the disease.

 

It is our long term goal, to increase awareness and funding for this deadly illness, in the hope that long term survival rates improve and give families more precious time with their loved ones.
