THE STORY:

Did you know that Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer related deaths and is projected to be the 2nd by 2020!!!!!!!  THAT SUCKS.

HOWEVER, it is the LEAST funded of the top 10 cancer killers. We need to do more!!

SAY WHAT?!?!?!  That is nuts! Those are some very scary numbers and the math does NOT add up!  If this is so prevalant and horrible... attacks so many people... why aren't more people sending their charity dollars to Pancreatic Cancer Research?  Research is THE ONLY way to change this statistic!  Please help me raise awareness and raise money to fund this RESEARCH!  WE NEED TO DO OUR PART!

Now that I have your attention: 

Why is this so important to me??????  If you know me, you probably know my amazing sister-in-law, Colleen Claffey.  She is one of the most generous, creative and kind people you could EVER know.  Guess what... cancer doesn't care.  Cancer just shows up and effs up your life no matter how awesome you are.  Colleen has spent the last year and a half of her life battling this horrible disease... and most of that time was spent just trying to figure out what was making her so sick and to diagnose her.  We can't help but ask every day, with more $$ and research, could that year have been spent treating instead of diagnosing??????  THAT is why I want to ask you to help me.  We NEED to do this.  We NEED to fund this research.  We NEED to stop this horrible disease.  We NEED early detection.  We NEED more doctors who are EXPERTS in this cancer.  We NEED better diagnostics and communication.  We NEED new and innovative treatments.  WE NEED YOU!

 

How am I helping?  We all can do our part in different ways.  I have chosen to push myself physically because Colleen is doing that every day.  I have choosen to train for and run the Chicago Marathon to raise awareness and money for Project Purple to fund Pancreatic Cancer Research and patient financial aid.  Did you read that part?  Financial Aid! Not only does this disease rob you of your health and often your life, it is also VERY EXPENSIVE for patients.  This organizaion ALSO helps with patient financial aid.  Hell yeah!  Go Project Purple!

 

Thank you for reading this.  Hopefully, you're as ticked off at this disease as I am.  Please help me in any way that you can.  I and my entire famiy thank you for reading this and chosing to help us.

THANK YOU!

Heather
