Polly's Run 2016
Team Member: nancy murphy bowles
I lost my brother, Dino, to pancreatic cancer 5 years ago. He was only 45 when he passed. Dino lived almost a year with this awful disease. If you don't anything about pancreatic cancer then you wouldn't know that a year is a gift if you've been diagnosed with stage 3 or 4. Most people are diagnosed at those stages sadly. Only 8% will survive for 5 years. This cancer is a deadly one, and we hope to change the course of it here in Albuquerque. Our group, The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, and Polly's Run work together to bring awareness of this disease. I'm proud to be part of this race. I run for Dino. Today is a good day.
