THE STORY:

PROJECT PURPLE wrote -


On October 24, 2016 my world was forever changed.  My mom-the rock of our family and best grandma (Gigi) was diagnoed with pancreatic cancer. The prognosis, like most diagnosed with pancreatic cancer was poor.  Despite knowing this she bravely and quickly dove into treatment. Three weeks after diagnosis the cancer had become so aggressive that she was admitted to hospital to manage symptoms and continue treatment.  We were fortunate and hopeful when the doctors let her come home for Thanksgiving. However the cancer was too advanced and Thanksgiving night she was readmitted.  My mom died a few short days later on November 30, 2016.  My beautiful, funnny, kind and vibrant mom was taken from us at the age of 64.  She died only 5 weeks after being diagnosed. The picture of her above was taken 3 weeks before she died which shows how aggressive this disease is.


I am running the NYC Marathon in memory of my mom and to help Project Purple raise funds to help fight this monster of a disease. This year pancreatic cancer surpassed breast cancer and became the third leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. No one should have to suffer through this disease.


The mission at Project Purple is to find a cure for pancreatic cancer and to improve the lives of patients through support, hope and compassion. Project Purple provides funding for critical pancreatic cancer research. Thanks to 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. 


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!
