THE STORY:

Please consider a donation in honor of Tass, our friend with pancreatic cancer.  

The Project Purple 5k run/walk is Sunday, April 3, in Monument Valley Park. All proceeds benefit Project Purple in support of our three programs (listed below). This is our second year throwing the Run to Beat Pancreatic Cancer in Colorado, and we're so excited to be back. Bring yourself out, pancreas and all, and help us raise money and awareness for this great cause.

Research

In the last four years, our charity has provided $500K in grants to top medical centers specializing in the study of pancreatic cancer. We have carefully selected institutions based on the quality of their work and their researchers. Recipients include Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Tufts Medical Center, University of Nebraska Medical Center, NYU, and Columbia. Grants have also been awarded to postdoctoral students and professional researchers, to support studies in early detection methods, a cure, and a better understanding of the mysterious and deadly disease.

 

Patient Financial Aid

Project Purple helps support families and individuals dealing with the financial burden of pancreatic cancer. Patients who are currently battling are given support with medical bills, living expenses, and travel. We also give care packages to patients to provide comfort during hospital visits.

 

Scholarships

For the past three years, Project Purple has helped undergraduate, graduate, and nursing students achieve their academic goals by providing scholarships. These awards are given to bright, passionate students whose lives have been adversely affected by pancreatic cancer. Many have lost parents or other close relatives to the disease, other had the disease themselves.
