THE STORY:

My father-in-law, Dr. Marvin Jassie, passed away in June 2016 after his bout with pancreatic cancer.   He was a good, kind, and caring man in every facet of his life, and although he was incredibly courageous and good spirited as he lived through the various stages of this horrible disease, we all witnessed how difficult it was on him. He loved sports and throughout his life was involved in supporting various causes.  An important part of running in the NYC marathon is the opportunity for my family to find a unique way to rally together and remember him for the great impact he had on us all. He would have loved to see our community working together to help find better treatments and one day, a cure. I know he would have been by my side through this process showing endless support. Race day will be filled with emotion as we all remember him together. Can't wait.  


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!
