Purple Cancer Kickers
I am very excited to be participating in the 15th annual Step-N-Out Virtual 5K to raise funds for TGen’s Pancreatic Cancer Research. More than 57,600 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2020, and an estimated 47,000 will die from it. TGen scientists are focused on developing a method of early detection for pancreatic cancer, aiming to stop this deadly disease in its earliest stages, before it becomes inoperable and more difficult to treat. TGen scientists are working, also, on new and innovative treatments.
I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in November 2017 and participated in a very progressive clinical trial at HonorHealth Research Institute, developed in conjunction with researchers at TGen. Now I am almost 3 years from diagnosis, and am so grateful that my husband and I have had this time, together, with our three children and their spouses, and with our first grandchild who turned one in August. I am fortunate to have had a good response to treatment, but so many others have not been as lucky.
Please help me support TGen's incredible research, and help thousands of others battling this disease.
