Spreading Hope…a hat at a time.

Today we will walk to Wage Hope as Team WandaWoman.  We walk in memory of a very brave and strong lady, my sister-in-law who fought a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.  We miss Wanda everyday!

We are striding to end a deadly disease at the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s PurpleStride Orange County 2016 Presented by Wienerschnitzel. It is estimated that more than 53,000 people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the United States this year and approximately 72 percent of patients will die in the first year of diagnosis. You can help change these statistics.

PurpleStride Orange County 2016 Presented by Wienerschnitzel raises awareness and critical funds to advance research, support patients and create hope in the pancreatic cancer community. For more information about the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and its important work, please visit their website at pancan.org.

Did you know that November 17, 2016 is World Pancreatic Cancer Day?  Join the ThunderClap here

Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest cancers. With a survival rate in the single digits, it is one of the only major cancers to see little improvement. Yet, according to a recent survey, 60% of people know “almost nothing” about pancreatic cancer.

It’s time to elevate the global conversation.

World Pancreatic Cancer Day

Imagine if we could unite the planet in support of a common goal. That’s the idea behind World Pancreatic Cancer Day.

November 17, 2016, is a day we will unite and make our voices heard. In the battle against pancreatic cancer we will show the world we are #InItTogether.

According to a worldwide survey, sixty percent of people know “almost NOTHING” about pancreatic cancer. It’s time to elevate the global conversation and draw attention to pancreatic cancer and the need for greater awareness.

By showing the world we are in this fight together, we hope to save lives and create a brighter future for people around the globe.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers.

Just 2-10 percent of those diagnosed survive five years.

Studies show that death rates for pancreatic cancer are increasing in the United States (in both sexes) and Europe (in women), while death rates are declining for most other cancers.
