Every 86 seconds someone is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Many of those patients are not only faced with a difficult and bleak diagnosis but also financial struggles as a result of their inability to work and costly medical co-pays/expenses. Project Purple is a lifeline for these patients. 100% of the money raised on Giving Tuesday will go to help pancreatic cancer patients through our Patient Financial Aid Program. Will you pause right now and make a tax-deductible donation?
Patients are counting on Project Purple to help them. We might not be able to take away their cancer but we can ease the financial stress on them and their families… and that is something we can all feel very proud of.
Here are some examples of what your donation will mean to patients:
$25: Blanket of Hope Care Package
$50: Medical Co-Pay
$100: Gas card for patient attending doctor exams/treatment
$500: Car Payment
$750: Utility Bills
$1000: Anti-Nausea Patch (critical during chemotherapy to continue treatments; many times it is not covered by insurance)
$2000: Medical Expenses
Project Purple Mission: a world without pancreatic cancer.
Project Purple Vision: to find a cure for pancreatic cancer and improve the lives of patients through support, hope, and compassion.
