BENEFITING: Marc Lustgarten Pancreatic Cancer Foundation
EVENT DATE: Sep 07, 2014
About 46,420 people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the U.S. in 2014, and about 39,590 will die from it, according to the American Cancer Society.
As most of you know, this horrible disease has affected my family personally, taking the lives of my husband, my brother, my mother-in-law and my aunt. In the last decade, the rates of pancreatic cancer have been increasing, an intolerable situation that needs to be reversed. Please support me as I attempt my first sprint triathlon and in doing so, you'll be supporting research to cure this deadly disease. Even if you can't donate, send good thoughts my way -- or better yet, come out to the race at Sandy Hook, N.J. Here's the info: http://www.irongirl.com/Events/Sandy_Hook.htm#axzz39NcaY2Om
