BENEFITING: PANCREATIC CANCER ACTION NETWORK INC
One year ago, my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She had few symptoms leading up to her shocking diagnosis. Doctors thought she would have a fighting chance, since she was young and otherwise healthy. But, the disease is so deadly that my family knew, even with treatment, we would only have about a year with our Mom. Six weeks later, after a painful battle with this terrible disease, she passed away.
According to PANCAN.org, pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly cancers. Approximately 94% of pancreatic cancer patients will die within five years of diagnosis and 74% of patients die within the first year of diagnosis.
So, let's raise some money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for research and for helping families currently fighting the same battle that my mom fought one year ago!
