THE STORY:

Let's be honest, CANCER SUCKS!!!! Let's find a way to kick its a$$ once and for all! My Uncle Butch was taken from us too soon because of this nasty cancer. If 175 people can donate $20, you will be helping us get one step closer to squashing this terrible illness. If you can donate more, great!

I'm running the NYC Marathon in honor of my Uncle Butch. I'm also running for my good friend, Derrick Barnhart, who suffers from congestive heart failure. These are two people that have shown me incredible strength, compassion, and love during their own times of struggle.

Please help me reach my goal of $3,500! I can't do it without you! ALSO, I always dress up for the marathon. The person with the biggest donation, gets to help me pick my costume for the race this year! I want it to be EPIC! Thank you for stopping by!

xoxo

PROJECT PURPLE wrote -

This year pancreatic cancer surpassed breast cancer and became the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. It is more important than ever that we continue to work hard towards reversing this trend.

Our mission at Project Purple is to find a cure for pancreatic cancer and to improve the lives of patients through support, hope and compassion. The money raised for Project Purple helps us fulfill our mission statement by funding several crucial programs.

Project Purple provides funding for critical pancreatic cancer research. Thanks to our donors we are helping fund research for an early detection test for pancreatic cancer. There is currently no form of early detection for this deadly form of cancer. The best odds at survival come when the disease is caught in its earliest stages. We also fund studies which seek effective methods to treat this deadly disease. Finally, we offer grants to graduate students who are pursuing a career in pancreatic cancer research.

We at Project Purple also recognize there are patients who are fighting pancreatic cancer right now and they need our help. Project Purple assists current patients through our Patient Financial Aid program. We also provide patients with Blankets of Hope Care Bags. We believe no one should this battle on their own.

Though the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer stands at just 9%, we know that with your help we can make our vision of a world without pancreatic cancer a reality!
