Hello! My name is Lexi Kaula, and my mom, Julie Wylie, fought a courageous battle against pancreatic cancer starting from her diagnosis on December 1st, 2015 until the day God decided her work here on Earth was done, May 28th, 2017. My mom participated in many clinical trials over her year and a half long battle with stage IV pancreatic cancer, but unfortunately, the cure has not been found yet. My mom, Julie, believed that she was truly paying it forward by joining the clinical trials at Honor Health research hospital in Scottsdale, AZ, and that one day her efforts as well as the efforts of the entire team of doctors and nurses that helped her along her journey will pay off in that a cure for this terrible disease will be found.
My husband and I have been active half marathoners/triathletes for the last few years. This year, in honor of my mom, Julie Wylie, we will be tackling our first full marathon at the Savannah Rock'n'Roll Marathon on November 4th. We are each aiming to raise $1000 to help fund Project Purple, an AMAZING organization that is doing wonders to help pancreatic cancer patients around the country. We would be blessed if you supported us on this journey, and know that we all need to step up to spread awareness for pancreatic cancer, and ultimately run for those who can't.
