On November 1, 2015 I will run the New York City marathon in honor of my dad, Graham. He was a wonderful, loving man who was taken from us way too soon following a painful battle with pancreatic cancer. Dad died within 9 months of being diagnosed, which is typical for this devastating disease.
I am excited to run this marathon in support of Project Purple, a non-profit organization with a mission of finding a cure. Pancreatic cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancers, yet it receives the LEAST amount of funding. Tragically, 75% of patients die within the first year and 96% do not make it past 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Dad was a strong, vibrant man who fought with everything he had. He was determined to live life to the fullest, up until the very end. Please help me celebrate his life and honor his memory by reaching my fundraising goal of $3500. Thank you so much for your support! - Mary
