#DoitforLou Palios

THE STORY:

We remember the day vividly. December 9, 2011, exactly 5 months after Stacey and Andrew’s wedding, it was confirmed that our father, Louis Palios, was diagnosed with Stage III Pancreatic Cancer. A man who was perfectly healthy beforehand. The cancer was not just in his pancreas; this terrible disease had spread to his liver as well, which made the disease more malignant. From that point forward, he was on a strict schedule of chemotherapy treatments as he was not a candidate for surgery.  Our dad lost his battle to cancer after 11 months on November 11, 2012. To stress the importance of research, a new chemotherapy cocktail was a factor in extending our dad’s life by three months. Although three months sounds very minor, my dad was able to celebrate his 64th birthday with friends and family.

In memory of those that lost their lives to pancreatic cancer and to help raise funding to fight this terrible disease, we will be running the Baltimore half marathon on October 12, 2013. Project Purple is a not for profit organization with a mission of raising awareness and funds towards a cure for Pancreatic Cancer.  This is the 4th largest killer of all cancers and one of the top ten least funded cancers. Even worse, there is a single digit (%) survival rate for those patients living with the disease after five years.

We would never want another family to go through what our family did over this 11 month period. Although we were able to tell our father that we loved him up until the last day of his life, the progression of the illness was way too fast. This is why we feel so passionate about raising money and finding a cure for Pancreatic Cancer. Please help support this wonderful cause and donate to our team #Do it for Lou!

We would also like to take a moment to remember a close friend or family member that is suffering from or has lost the battle against cancer.
