THE STORY:

Until 2009, I knew very little about pancreatic cancer.  All of that changed when my dad, Ray Mattson, was diagnosed with Stage 4 pancreatic cancer in March.  My family got a crash course in it.  My dad received chemotherapy through a clinical trial.  He also had a biliary drain placed.  Seven short months later in October, my dad passed away.  Pancreatic cancer will never define who my dad was.  However, that horrible disease stole my dad way too early from our family.  Since then, I have been on a mission to help raise awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer.  To know that the 5 year survival rate remains in the single digits and that by 2020, pancreatic cancer is expected to be the 2nd leading cancer cause of death are reasons to keep me fighting to make a difference.  My dream has been to make Purple in November mean what Pink does in October.  Running a half marathon and raising awareness at the same time is the perfect match for me.  Please consider helping me with the fight against pancreatic cancer by providing a tax deductible donation to my cause.
