BENEFITING: PROJECT PURPLE
ORGANIZER: PROJECT PURPLE
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I'm participating in the 2013 New York City Marathon and running for Project Purple. I want to help in finding a cure for pancreatic cancer. In 2009 my mom, Sharon Thomas, was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer, prognosis very grim. She is one of the strongest women I know, fighting for 2 years with this horrible cancer. Unfortunately she lost her battle in 2011, but her strong spirit still lives on through her daughters and grandkids.
This effort is to help with funding more research for early detection along with hopefully eventually finding a cure. Please join me.
Thank you very much!

Pancreatic Cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancer killers and the least funded of the top 10 cancers. It is also the only cancer in the top 10 killer with a single digit survival rate after 5 years.

Pancreatic Cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancers and the least funded of the top 10 cancer killers today. We need to do more - we have lost one too many friends, family and loved ones to this evil cancer.
