Running to End Pancreatic Cancer
July 27, 2017
My Dad and I will be running the NYC Marathon in November on behalf of Project Purple, and Doug Cooper, one of Peter's close friends who lost the battle earlier this year. Project Purple provides funding for critical pancreatic cancer research. Thanks to donors, they are helping fund research for an early detection test for pancreatic cancer. There is currently no early detection test for this deadly form of cancer.
Although the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is just 9%, we know that with your help, we can contribute progress towards a world without pancreatic cancer.
We will be hosting a fundraiser at Palisades tennis club, on September 2nd with par-3 golf, round robin tennis, and a fun silent auction/raffle with food. We hope to see many of you there, but if not, you can support us right here!
Thank you all!!
