Fundraiser for Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation | Lustgarten Foundation
Event Fundraiser: 2018 DASH for Detection 5K Walk/Run for Pancreatic Cancer Research
Join us in the fight against pancreatic cancer. Research is our best weapon.
You may know that my family and I have been deeply affected by pancreatic cancer. However, you may not know that pancreatic cancer is the nation's fourth leading cause of cancer deaths, or that the low survival rate for this disease has hardly improved in 25 years.
Research holds the key to finding better treatments and a cure. Yet only 2% of all federal cancer research funding goes to pancreatic cancer. Additional money for research is urgently needed to help change the course of this disease.
That's why I have joined forces with Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation and Lustgarten Foundation to participate in DASH FOR DETECTION Pancreatic Cancer Research 5K. Both foundations understand that research is our best weapon in the fight. Together, we can give patients a fighting chance.
