THE STORY:

Welcome to my fundraising page for Project Purple! I am so excited to join a team to fight something that has impacted my life so closely and do it in a manner I am so familiar with. Through running!

My mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer June 26th of this year. The last few weeks have been emotional and stressful but we are extremely lucky. Her cancer was caught very early at stage 2B. She had a whipple procedure done to remove the tumor on July 3rd and after 12 long days she is back home with me and my father recovering. We have many more hospital visits in the future and she will have to go through 8 months of chemotherapy and radiation combined but she is the strongest woman I know and I am confident she will come out the other side of this as happy and gregarious as ever. She has taught me so much over the years and I cannot imagine my life without her. My family is lucky but I know there are other families going through the same pain that are not.

I ran the Marine Corps Marathon last year in 2012 for my father, a retired marine of 22 years. This year I run for my mother, and coincidentally my best friend.

If you would like to support, please click the big DONATE button or go one step further and help us fundraise by clicking the big CREATE YOUR FUNDRAISER button. You'll get your own fundraising page to share with all your amazing family and friends. Every dollar goes toward research, scholarships for affected children, and even helping families with their every day bills.

Pancreatic Cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancers and the least funded of the top 10 cancer killers today. We need to do more - we have lost one too many friends, family and loved ones to this evil cancer.

Thank you SO much for your support!
