Pancreatic Cancer: Know it. Fight it. End it.
In Honor of Linda (Cough) Callan. In Memory of Bill Rusick.
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Pancreatic Cancer is devastating. More than 116 people are diagnosed with this disease each day. Much more research needs to be done to fight it, to cure it. The mission of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is to advance research, support patients, and create hope.
I am running a Marathon in Memphis on December 5th with the hope of raising awareness and support for pancreatic cancer research. I have a good friend - I call her Cough - fighting this disease with everything she's got. She is an amazing person, friend, mother, and sister. I lost a friend, tennis coach, and all-around fun-loving guy, Billy, to pancreatic cancer last October. He is sadly missed by family and friends. Help me give this cancer a kick in the butt. Federal funding is just not enough. We need to do what we can to advocate for a cure. Wear purple. Join a Walk or Run for Purple Stride. Support your loved ones facing this illness. Donate. Pray. Let's stop this disease in it's tracks.
For Cough. And in Billy's memory. I hope that you will join me in the fight.
Thank you and God bless.
