Welcome to My Personal Page
Recently our wife/mother/nan was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is currently undergoing a clinical trial chemo treatment. Her chemo commenced in November 2011 and is ongoing. She has remained very optimistic and has shown her family enormous strength/courage and remains optimistic. Our goal is to raise funds and awareness for this underfunded research. Please join us on April 14, 2012 at Georgetown Bowl. If you are unable to join us please make a donation on the Pancreatic website.
This coming year, thousands of Canadians will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and told there is little hope for survival. I have 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 landmark 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.
Unlike other cancers, the survival rate has not improved in the last 40 years and it remains the only cancer with a 5-year survival rate still in the single digits at 6%. You can help change this statistic by joining our fight!
We believe ... there CAN be a future without pancreatic cancer. We need your support to reach our goal and make this dream a reality.
Thank you for helping me reach my fundraising goal!
Together we can make a difference!
