Fight for a Cure...Fight for Life

Organized by: Erica Wright

THE STORY:

Since my brother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year, we’ve been searching long and hard for ways to fight this cancer. In United States little is known about this terrible disease. There are no early tests for pancreatic cancer (signs and symptoms are easily attributed to another disease).
There is no cure, unless the tumor is surgically removed in its earliest stages. But pancreatic cancer is usually found after it has spread. Surgery to remove the cancer is no longer an option to our loved one.

Chemotherapy and radiation are the one-size-fits-all treatment for all cancers. These treatments have many side effects and one of the side effects it is the possibility of a secondary and more aggressive cancer as the tumor reseeds.

My brother is dedicating his body to new therapeutic strategies in order to discover ways to annihilate pancreatic tumor cells and prevent the cancer cells further growth.
His ultimate goal is to find the breakthrough that will help to extend the survivability and quality of life to those affected by this deadly disease.

We ask you graciously to help us with this journey. Your monetary contribution is very much appreciated and will play a role in the efforts to find a cure for this dreadful disease.

We will be selling dinners and drinks in May 16th 2015 as a fundraiser to help with the costs. Please donate anything you can on the site or come visit us for a dinner and donate then.

In the name of Steven Wilkes (pancreatic cancer patient)

Thank You.
