Pancreatic cancer knows no bounds … it can strike anyone, at anytime. This past year, Kathy passed away from this devastating disease and like thousands of Canadians who are diagnosed each year, she was given little hope for survival.

We have chosen to join Pancreatic Cancer Canada in their fight to SAVE LIVES by raising funds in her honour to support research that focuses on detecting pancreatic cancer at a earlier stage and improving the treatment options available for patients.

Pancreatic cancer is not as well known as other cancers but it remains the deadliest. People are shocked to learn that it claims nearly as many lives each year as breast and prostate yet remains somewhat of an underdog cancer - underfunded and misunderstood.

 There is no prevention, no early detection, limited treatment options and no cure. Seventy-five percent (75%) of all patients die within the first year, most within the first three to six months. Only a handful of scientists concentrate solely on this disease due to the lack of funding earmarked for research. As a result, the 5-year survival rate has remained unchanged for decades; it remains the only cancer with a 5-year survival rate still in the single digits at 6%.

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