After losing my father to pancreatic cancer just five weeks from his diagnosis, I am determined to do whatever I can in raising money and awareness around pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. surpassing breast cancer. It is expected to become the 2nd deadliest cancer by 2020. Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers. -American Cancer Society
I will be runnign with Project Purple in the 2020 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Project Purple has a mission of a world without pancreatic cancer and we need your help to fund more research and help more families fighting.
