THE STORY:

Hello Friends and Family,

In December, my father Terry Grywalski, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  He underwent a Whipple surgery in early January at Ohio State hospital which was complicated and required a prolonged hospital stay. He is now home working very hard everyday to regain his strength and endurance with the support of Traci (his wife) and his siblings.  We love him more than words can express and pray everyday that he will beat this awful disease.    

I have decided to run Grandma's Marathon in June and Brooks has joined me to run the half marathon so that we can contribute in some way to raising money for Pancreatic Cancer research and support.  We have a combined goal of $2000 for this race and hope to raise even more!   Any contribution, big or small, is appreciated!  

Thank you kindly,

Terra & Brooks Schmitt   

This year pancreatic cancer surpassed breast cancer and became the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. It is more important than ever that we continue to work hard towards reversing this trend.

Our mission at Project Purple is to find a cure for pancreatic cancer and to improve the lives of patients through support, hope and compassion. The money raised for Project Purple helps us fulfill our mission statement by funding several crucial programs.

Project Purple provides funding for critical pancreatic cancer research. Thanks to our donors we are helping fund research for an early detection test for pancreatic cancer. There is currently no form of early detection for this deadly form of cancer. The best odds at survival come when the disease is caught in its earliest stages. We also fund studies which seek effective methods to treat this deadly disease. Finally, we offer grants to graduate students who are pursuing a career in pancreatic cancer research.

We at Project Purple also recognize there are patients who are fighting pancreatic cancer right now and they need our help. Project Purple assists current patients through our Patient Financial Aid program. We also provide patients with Blankets of Hope Care Bags. We believe no one should this battle on their own.

Though the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer stands at just 9%, we know that with your help we can make our vision of a world without pancreatic cancer a reality!
