Thank you all for coming to my page and supporting me in this fight against pancreatic cancer. I will be participating in the Tri-State Tough Mudder Half on Sunday, October 9, 2016 with Project Purple. As you know, my Dad lost his battle with Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer that had metastasized to his liver, lungs and bones on Friday, August 26, 2016. I've now seen first hand what this horrible beast does to someone in such a short period of time. No one should have to endure what they go through in a matter of days and weeks right after diagnosis. So, this lead me to joining this amazing organization to help raise awareness and funds in honor of my Dad.

Pancreatic cancer is now ranked as the 3rd deadliest cancer in the U.S., and researchers estimate that it will reach 2nd place by 2020. With no cure, no early detection methods, subtle symptoms, and the lowest five-year survival rate of all the top 10 cancers (only 8%), this cancer is a nasty beast. Joining the Project Purple team means you’re going to be part of something that’s more than the sweat, mud, and determination it takes to cross the finish line. You’re going to be part of the fight to beat pancreatic cancer.
