On March 22, 2009, we lost our beloved mother to pancreatic cancer. It was a brief, torurous battle that left us all devastated. She was 55 and left our lives far too early. We were amazed to know that pancreatic cancer has one of the lowest survival rates of all cancers with almost no treatment options. That is unacceptable.
I'll be participating in the LA Cancer Challenge! The LACC helps the Hirshberg Foundation raise money to fund research and programs designed to improve patient care, offer better treatment options and, ultimately find a cure for pancreatic cancer.
Please consider contributing towards my fundraising efforts today. Or if you'd like, you can join me for a day of costumes and fun, remembering those we have lost and celebrating those who are currently battling this disease. Together we can make a huge difference in the battle against pancreatic cancer.
