When my mom turned yellow, she made a joke of it. But when the jaundice was diagnosed as pancreatic cancer, no one was laughing. The more research I did the more depressed and hopeless I became. The survival rate was extremely low. But Mom kept a positive attitude even through the Whipple procedure and rounds of chemotherapy at MD Anderson. She was confident that she would survive. Unfortunately, 18 months after her diagnosis, Mom was gone. When I found the charity Project Purple, I knew training for this run and fundraising for them was what I needed to do. I didn’t realize that of the governmental research funds for cancer, only 5% is allocated to pancreatic cancer. That’s where Project Purple comes in. They have been able to provide research grants to facilities like MD Anderson and provide patient financial support. Please join me if you can in support of fighting pancreatic cancer. Let’s fight for Edna!
