Pay it Forward for Project Purple

THE STORY:

We're calling on our friends, our neighbors, and total strangers to pay it forward.

Pancreatic cancer is #4 on the list of the most deadly cancers, and it is projected to be #1 by 2030. The chances of survival are only 5% after five years, higher than any other cancer. More than 36,000 people die of this disease every year and it is the only cancer for which deaths are expected to increase*. Contrary to popular belief, this disease attacks people of all sexes, ages, and lifestyles. There are no early detection methods and no cures, and pancreatic cancer receives a mere 3%** of the annual funding allotted for cancer research by the government.


Help Project Purple change these statistics for the better. In the last two years, with the help of generous people like you, we have already been able to give grants to major pancreatic cancer research facilities like the Tufts Medical Center($35,000), Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center($35,000), and the University Nebraska Medical Center ($150,000). We only ask that you give what you can. Forgo that popcorn and coke at the movies this weekend, give us that $10 instead. Imagine if we could get 2,000 people to skip popcorn and a coke, we could raise $20,000 in no time!

If we each give just a little, together, we can do a lot.
