EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Two weeks after her 70th birthday, pancreatic cancer took my mother Patricia Nugent away from her children, grandchildren, family, and friends.
Mom led her life by example; showing those around her how to face adversity, how to be kind, and how to help others. In the two years between her diagnosis and her passing, Mom lived her best possible life and taught each of us about grace and dignity in the face of overwhelming odds. I run and raise funds in her memory.
I am proud to contribute my efforts through Project Purple to support the patients and families dealing with pancreatic cancer. Project Purple raises awareness, supports research, and provides a helping hand to families impacted by the overwhelming costs of medical care. Please consider giving what you can to help those in need.
