A few weeks ago, my big brother Tom received some devastating news. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer - the same cancer that took the life of our father. We have been working hard to get him started on a treatment plan and figure out all options available to him. I decided to run the 2019 Marine Corps Marathon to raise money for pancreatic cancer and pancreas disease research.
On Sunday, October 27, 2019, the National Pancreas Foundation Team will be running through the streets of Washington, DC to raise money for cutting-edge research for those suffering from pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer, advocating for new and better therapies, and providing support and education for patients, caregivers, and health care professionals.
I humbly ask for your support in this effort and thank you for your consideration.
