As a team of Spartans, we are running to raise funds and awarness for Pancreatic Cancer. One of our teamates, Alex Palios, lost his father after battling Pancreatic Cancer in November of 2012. For many of us, we have shared experiences with Lou that we will never forget, and for that reason, we are fighting to beat this horrible disease.
Pancreatic cancer is the 4th largest cancer killers and is the least funded of the top 10 cancers. It is also the only cancer in the top 10 with a single digit survival rate after 5 years.
We would never want another family to go through what the Palios family did over the 11 month period of their fathers diagnoses. Although they were able to tell their father that they 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!
