THE STORY:

In June 2014, my dad, Joe Praught, was diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer. I knew that he had felt sick, but the ultimate diagnosis was worse than anyone in my family could imagine.Two short weeks after this, he passed away without time to begin his fight against the disease.

Dad was a generous and fun-loving person who was also always the first to help friends and family with anything. He was an adventure seeker. He enjoyed rides on his Harley, skydiving and would sample any exotic dishes offered to him. 

In keeping with his motto "Do the right thing," I've decided to join Project Purple in running the Rock 'n Roll half marathon in memory of him and his larger than life ways. 

Currently there is only a 1% survival rate for a stage IV diagnosis, but with fundraising and awareness, these odds can improve. Project Purple contributes to the cause of pancreatic cancer research in the hopes of preventing other families from facing this devastating disease.
