Thank you for visiting my fundraising page in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, and in memory of my late mom, Li Lin, who passed away February 7 after an 11-month battle with pancreatic cancer.
This cancer was not a fair fight, but she courageously fought with determination, dignity, and a strong spirit. We hope that her story will help raise awareness of this terrible disease and bring us closer to a cure. All donations in honor and memory of Li through this site are directly contributed to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. You can learn more about the great work that they do at

Why PANCAN needs your help:
-Pancreatic cancer is currently the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States and is anticipated to become the second by 2020.
-Pancreatic cancer has the lowest relative survival rate of all the cancers tracked by both the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute: only 6% will survive more than five years. 74% of patients die within the first year of diagnosis. Of all the major cancers, pancreatic cancer is the only one with a five-year survival rate in the single digits and the only one for which incidence and death rates are increasing.
-Pancreatic Cancer is the least funded of the top five deadliest cancers. There are still no early detection tools or life-saving treatments. Federal investment in cancer research has produced results, both in terms of the number of new treatments and survival rates. We now need the same type of results in pancreatic cancer.

Thank you for your love and support and we hope you'll join us in the fight against pancreatic cancer.
