THE STORY:

As many of you know, my dad died of cancer over 20 years ago at the age of 44 after a 7 month battle with pancreatic cancer. He left behind 4 kids, ages 7 to 17, my mom who was suddenly a single parent having to raise us alone, both of his parents, his brother and sister and their families, and countless other family and friends. 

As you can tell from the pictures, he was a pretty fun-loving guy (who doesn't love hanging out having a beer in a kiddie pool??) and we have truly missed having his oversized presence in our lives.

Over the years, my family and I have participated in walks and runs to raise money for pancreatic cancer research and every time the organizers call up the survivors to celebrate them before the walk starts. You can usually count the survivors on one hand, if there are any at all. 

The statistics regarding this cancer have barely changed since my dad died 20+ years ago. Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer related deaths and is projected to be the 2nd by 2020. In spite of this, however, it is the least funded of the top 10 cancer killers. The 5 year survival rate is abysmal. This is one of the scariest cancers out there.

Terence and I have signed up to run the Chicago Marathon with Project Purple, dedicated to raising awareness and funds towards a cure, early detection methods, and patient financial aid.

We are hoping to raise a combined $3000 for this cause, and we would be eternally grateful for any donations, no matter how big or small. Thanks so much and let's start attacking this cancer!
