THE STORY:

Hey there friends and family!

I am here to gather support for the race I am running - the NYC Half Marathon on March 17th. I am running in honor of Patrice McInnis, who passed away a little over a year ago after a battle with Pancreatic Cancer. Patrice is the mother of one of my best childhood friends, Meaghan McInnis. I have been so lucky to have Patrice and Meaghan as amazing friends and cheerleaders my whole life, and I am thankful to now have a cheerleader and guardian angel watching over me from above.
 
All proceeds go to Project Purple.

Project Purple's mission is to help families touched by Pancreatic Cancer and raise funds towards a cure. Project Purple was established in 2010 after the founder's dad was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in 2008 and then re-diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer in mid 2010. Pancreatic Cancer is the number 1 cancer killer among the top 10 major killers of cancer. The 5 year survival rate is less than 6% the lowest of all major cancers. Only 1 in 5 that are diagnosed are candidates for surgery which happens to be a surgery called The Whipple that has not changed in over 50 years. Their are no early tests and most therapy treatments do not work. So the out look is not good or bright for some one diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer.

We have 3 main programs that your fundraising efforts will help fund:

  • Scholarship Program
  • Patient Financial Aid Program
  • Research Program

We also provide care packs to patients that are recently diagnosed as a gesture of hope to let them know that we are here fighting for them and for them not to give up hope. Project Purple has been involved on a local and national level lobbying for more funding for Pancreatic Cancer research. Pancreatic Cancer compared to other cancers has never gotten much money for the government funding for research - in 2011 in only accounted for less than 2% of the National Cancer Institute budget which equaled 97 million compared to breast cancer which received 678 million for research.

Thank you for your help!
