Update on Paul
September 16, 2017

I got a chance to sit down and chat with Paul today and he has been very touched by the outpouring of support from friends and family.  For  See more

THE STORY:

Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. It is a terrifying disease because it is extremely difficult to diagnose and has an exceedingly low survival rate. Pancreatic cancer is not selective. It can affect anyone – think Apple CEO Steve Jobs, actor Patrick Swayze, Nobel Prize winner Ralph Steinman, astronaut Sally Ride, and NFL great Gene Upshaw. Most recently, it has effected someone close to me and my family; Paul Andrew.  

If you know Paul, you know him to be passionate about family, friends and life in general. He has a great sense of humor, a strong work ethic and is passionate about sports. If you don’t know Paul, you know someone just like him. Recently Paul underwent a Whipple procedure, a complicated surgery that involves the removal of a large portion of the pancreas and surrounding organs. He continues to receive chemotherapy to fight persistent tumors.  

Paul’s courage throughout his battle against pancreatic cancer encouraged me to find some way to honor him and his spirit and to join him in his fight. Knowing that Paul had previously run a marathon, I have decided to run the New York City Marathon on November 6th for Project Purple, a charity organization that raises money to fund research for a cure and better early testing for pancreatic cancer. I am excited to be a part of Project Purple because, unlike other forms of cancer, there are few fundraising events and awareness campaigns when it comes to pancreatic cancer, even with pancreatic cancer rates on the rise. 

I hope that you might be willing to help me in supporting Project Purple and donating toward a cure for pancreatic cancer in honor of Paul.  If you would prefer to send a check, please make it payable to Project Purple and mail it to me at 66 Overlook Drive, South Burlington, VT 05403. 

Thank you for your consideration
