Welcome to My Personal Page
Did you know Pancreatic Cancer is the 3rd deadliest Cancer, but expected to be 2nd by 2030? More research is needed, and TGen is an amazing foundation helping to find early detection and longevity with the disease.
Pancreatic Cancer not only hit my family once, but sadly twice. My beautiful Aunt Joanne, one of my mother's older sisters, was diagnosed in May 2000. Even though she had a Whipple performed June 2000, she succumbed to complications from the surgery the following day at 56.
Fast forward to August 2013. My mother, also 56 at the time, is informed she has a tumor on her pancreas. One week later, we found out it was in fact cancerous, and she had terminal Pancreatic Cancer. 10 months to the day of her cancer being confirmed, she passed away. Anything I can do to prevent my family, my friends, or their families from having a loved one go through this, I will!
Below are some recent statics:
The average lifetime risk of pancreatic cancer is about 1 in 64.
2019 estimates: About 56,770 people (29,940 men and 26,830 women) will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. About 45,750 people (23,800 men and 21,950 women) will die of pancreatic cancer.
Please help Team Hope raise money to assist with TGen's research of pancreatic cancer.
Thank you for your support.
