THE STORY:

Hi all! Running the NYC Marathon has been something I have been wanting to do for a long time and this year it happens to be on my older brother's 40th birthday! So being the sister I am, I begged him to do it with me and knowing he would never let me run a marathon before he did, we are running it together! We decided that we would run this race in honor of his late mother-in-law, Jasmin, who battled Pancreatic Cancer and passed away within 3 months of being diagnosed. She was an amazing woman who put everyone before her and always treated me like one of her own. 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.

The team I will be running with is called Project Purple. Their mission 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 fulfill our mission statement by funding several crucial programs. They also fund studies which seek effective methods to treat this deadly disease. Project Purple also offers grants to graduate students who are pursuing a career in pancreatic cancer research.

Thank you all for taking the time to read, donate and support me and Project Purple!
