EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
I am raising money for Pancreatic Cancer research and running the Lincoln Half-Marathon. Jon's dad, Al Instefjord passed from this cancer 10 months from the time he was diagnosed. Pancreatic Cancer is the #4 killer cancer in the US. Symptoms of pancreatic cancer often remain absent until the disease has progressed to an advanced stage. I am raising funds and awareness so researchers may begin to better understand the process from genetic mutation to cancer development. It may one day be possible to develop better screening methods that are available to the general population, and can diagnose pancreatic cancer earlier.
