THE STORY:

After losing my mother to pancreatic cancer just 51 days after she was diagnosed in November 2009, I decided to do something about the grim statistics and realities that make up this devastating disease. Joan's Run was held the following spring and after learning of a local 35-year old woman who lost her life to the same disease just 2 days after Joan's Run, I renamed the 5k to J's Run in order to combine efforts, raise awareness and dollars to find a cure for PC.
During the short time that my mother fought for her life, I felt privileged to help care for her and be by her side. I realized not only that no one is immune to getting a deadly disease, but also that we don't know when our final day will come. Therefore, it is imperative that each of us "lives this life" to its fullest and try to be the best we can be.
Pancreatic cancer deserves a level playing field. It's the 4th deadliest cancer yet remains low on the totem pole by the NCI. Just 2% is spent on this disease for which there is NO early detection, NO cure and very little in terms of treatment.
