Help me take the LA Cancer Challenge!
Pancreatic Cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer. For all stages combined, the 5-year relative survival rate is just 9%.
Friday we lost another treasure to the disease - Ruth Bader Ginsburg. By coincidence, one of my contra dance acquaintances was also just diagnosed. Past victims include my favorite singer Luciano Pavarotti, Congressman John Lewis, Steve Jobs, Aretha Franklin, John Hurt, Dizzy Gillespie, Sally Ride, Patrick Swayze, Michael Landon, et. al.
I'm participating in the LA Cancer Challenge at UCLA. I've done this run several times in past years (although not lately). Please consider contributing towards my fundraising efforts today. This year, because of the pandemic it will be virtual, but I'll still do my own run.
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.
Together we can make a huge difference in the battle against pancreatic cancer.
