The Fight to End Pancreatic Cancer

PanCan Peacemakers

Queen City Marathon Team Relay

September 9th, 2012

We are running 42.2 km for our Mom Jane and our Aunt Brenda -- two special women who we lost to this awful disease.  It is so important that research is done to help with earlier detection! Read more below:  

This coming year, thousands of Canadians will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and told there is little hope for survival. Our team has chosen to join Pancreatic Cancer Canada in their fight to SAVE LIVES by raising funds to support research that focuses on detecting pancreatic cancer at a earlier stage and improving treatment options.

Of all forms of cancer, pancreatic is the most lethal. There is no prevention, no early detection and limited treatment options.  People are shocked to learn that it claims nearly as many lives each year as breast and prostate cancer yet remains somewhat of an underdog ? underfunded and misunderstood.

A recent report from the non-profit institute, Charity Intelligence Canada, cited pancreatic cancer as the most seriously underfunded cancer, receiving less than 1% of research and charitable funding. As a result, only a handful of scientists concentrate solely on this disease and unlike other cancers, the survival rate has not improved in the last 40 years; it remains the only cancer with a 5-year survival rate still in the single digits at 6%.

The statistics CAN and MUST CHANGE!

Pancreatic Cancer Canada is fighting to change this and we are asking for your help to support them in their efforts.
