THE STORY:

In 1999, I had never heard of Pancreatic Cancer.  That all changed though, when the diagnosis was given to my mother, Anne McGuinness.  I consider myself lucky because despite the dire diagnosis, we got one more year - one more set of birthdays, an Easter, a Fourth of July, a Thanksgiving, a Christmas - that was lucky because very often, Pancreatic Cancer patients don't even get that year.

Now, almost fifteen years after we lost her, pancreatic cancer patients still have limited options and a dire outlook.  Pancreatic cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancers, and the least funded of the top 10 cancer killers today. 

My mother was the mother of seven children, grandmother to five (now twelve), and teacher to countless students.  I was blessed enough to be one of her students and witness firsthand the joy and energy she brought to the classroom.

What I really remember about my mother though is her love of a good joke and distinctive laugh - if we ever lost her in a crowded room, all we had to do was wait for the laugh.  It always seems that cancer is a choosy disease - it strikes down the best and brightest and leaves the world a little dimmer.  

I am honored to run with Project Purple, on the streets of her hometown of Boston, MA.  I hope that you will support me and Project Purple in their goal of raising funds and awareness for this devastating cancer that desperately needs to progress to a cure.
