I am running the New York City Half Marathon with Project Purple to honor my Grandma, who has recently been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. While this diagnosis is difficult to grasp, my Grandma is resilient, valiant, and strong-willed. I am confident that she can combat any obstacle that comes her way.
Project Purple strives to raise awareness and funds towards a cure for Pancreatic Cancer - a disease that has impacted nearly 60,000 individuals in the U.S. in 2019. This organization touches the lives of patients through impactful initiatives, and its purpose and mission is inspiring to me.
Compassion, love, and hope can go a long way. Please take time to learn more about Pancreatic Cancer, spread the word, and consider donating!
