Project Purple NYC 2017

THE STORY:

In 2003, my father went to the doctor for a pain he was having in his abdomen area.  The doctor wasn't exactly sure what is what but suggested additional tests as "something" showed up on the scan.   That doctor ended up saving my father's life as that "something" ended up being Pancreatic cancer.  Subsequently, my father had successful Whipple procedure and is one of the few who have passed the 5 year survival rate post detection.

Most people are not lucky enough to have it detected so early as there is no true early detection methods for a cancer that has surpassed breast cancer as 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.  

I will be running the NYC marathon in November on behalf of Project Purple. 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. 

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!
