The pictures are from the 2015 NYC Marathon, the last time I ran for Project Purple in honor of my father, who passed away in 2006 from Pancreatic Cancer. I am running the 2020 NYC Half marathon in March in his honor again and for all of those who have battled and are currently battling Pancreatic Cancer.Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate among all major cancers.
In nearly every country, pancreatic cancer is the only major cancer with a single-digit five-year survival rate.
Every day, more than 1,257 people worldwide will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and an estimated 1,184 will die from the disease.
It is estimated that in 2025, 557,688 new cases will be diagnosed globally.
