In honor of Jon Engen
Jon passed away from pancreatic cancer on April 25th. Pancreatic cancer is soon going to be the third leading cause of cancer deaths in this country because there is no early detection screening like many other cancers; it is usually not discovered until the cancer has progressed significantly. It is silent in the beginning and horrific in the end. The 5 year survival rate is less than 10%.
I have lost the most important people in my life to cancer and I am riding in this event to raise funds and awareness to try to advance research so that others do not have to share the pain and suffering that this cancer brought to Jon and our family. Our team's donations will be made in Jon's honor to the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer. Please help me make a difference.
