Help me take the LA Cancer Challenge!
I lost my sister to pancreatic cancer and a half-dozen of my team members have lost their own loved ones. Pancreatic cancer has become a public health crisis, with new cases up 80.6% in the last 15 years, and it now claims more lives in the US than breast cancer, liver cancer, kidney cancer, prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, melanoma, lymphoma or leukemia. More than 55,000 people in the US will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year and more than 44,000 – 120 per day or 5 per hour! – will lose their lives to it. Other cancers can rely on armies of survivors to advocate for funding for research but pancreatic cancer cannot because it still claims the lives of the vast majority of those it afflicts so please help us do something about it. The 21st LA Cancer Challenge will take place on Sunday, October 21st, at UCLA and the proceeds of this event will be funneled into pancreatic cancer research seed grants. Please come join me if you can and please consider a small donation if you can’t.
