Please support me in the LA Cancer Challenge!
Pancreatic cancer is a vicious disease that has doubled in just two decades. It now claims more lives in the US than breast cancer, liver cancer, kidney cancer, ovarian cancer, lymphoma or leukemia but it doesn’t get the attention or funding it deserves because, unlike those other cancers, there are precious few survivors. The Hirshberg Foundation provides care and assistance to patients and families battling pancreatic cancer but only research will change the course of this disease. The proceeds of this event are funneled directly to pancreatic cancer researchers in the form of seed grants so please pitch in. You can see exactly where your donations go. This is where they went last year: http://pancreatic.org/research/seed-grant-program/seed-grant-recipients/).
The Foundation struggles to fund as many seed grants as possible but many robust and promising grants are passed over every year, due to a lack of funding, and for every grant that is passed over, hope for understanding this deadly disease and hope for a cure is diminished.
The 23rd annual LA Cancer Challenge will take place on Sunday, October 25th, and it’s a virtual event this year, due to COVID, so you can participate from wherever you are. Please join my team and/or make a donation. We are all at risk so let’s work together to develop better testing, expand treatment options, improve patient outcomes and work toward an eventual cure!
