My Dad died of Pancreatic Cancer. He was diagnosed in January of 1994 and died the day after Thanksgiving the same year. It was quick , extremely painful, and brutal with him , taking him from a robust and healthy man of 60, to a frail, thin, shell of his former self, and ultimately dead in 10 months. there is no need to sugar coat his and our experience. It was horrible and most of my immediate family has never "gotten over it". The survival rate ( those still alive 5 years after diagnosis) in 1994 was 5% . In 2019 the survival rate is 9 %. Pancreatic Cancer research receives 5 % of the federal monies aooppointed to cancer research. We must do better. Those with an early disagnosis seem to do better. NYU has an early detection clininc that offers a lot of hope. Project Purple is a sponsor of that clinic. I believe in this organization and I know firsthand how devastating this illness can be, not only to those dying from it, but for those who love them. Please consider a donation. Thank you all.
