Pancreatic cancer hits too close to home for me - my mom and her mom (my nonnie) lost their battle way too early in their lives - 72 and 59 respectively. Now my 1st best friend is fighting it too! She is winning the battle but I want to help her win the war. So, I'm running the Chicago Marathon this year with Project Purple - www.projectpurple.org - to help defeat Pancreatic Cancer. For my mom, my nonnie and Carla - please give what you can - any amount, large or small, is appreciated. A shout out to my employer, Associated Agencies, who has generously agreed to match up to $2,500; how awesome is that!
