In just ONE WEEK my family and I will be walking in the PAncreatic CAncer Research Walk. We are trying to reach a goal of $2,000 total for our group. We are SO CLOSE.
ANY donation is appreciated.
The past 6 months have been very difficult for my family and I, and we find some sort of comfort in doing this walk in my fathers honor and raising money for a good cause. We don’t want other families to have to go through what we did.
Blehhhh getting sick. This is the WORST.
On October 4th, 2013 My family and I suffered a great loss. We lost one of the greatest men to ever grace our lives, my father. This has not been an easy road for my family and I. Back in November of 2012 we received the news that my father was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. He was given only a few months to live. We were so blessed to have been given not just a few months, but eleven months with him, to enjoy life and spend time together, as a family. I always find it so amazing and actually uplifting when I look back at the few days after he was diagnosed; my father looked at his diagnosis as just another hurtle to climb. He always kept a positive attitude and never once gave up. My father always saw the good in everything. When he was diagnosed with cancer, I remember him coming up to me and saying “This is a blessing in disguise”, and he was smiling. I remember being completely confused because I thought of this as ANYTHING BUT a blessing. My dad looked at me and said “Pancreatic cancer brought you back to me.” Before my father was diagnosed, our relationship as father and daughter was not as close as we had wanted it to be, and with his diagnosis we realized how stubborn and plain out dumb we were actually being. It breaks my heart that it took something so dark to have us embrace our relationship, but my father saw this as the way it HAD to be. He saw the light in something so awful. This will forever be one of the hardest challenges my family has faced and so on April 6th, 2014 we will be walking for my father on our team “Fighting For Frank” please join the fight to end Pancreatic Cancer.
Thanks to a commitment by Cablevision to underwrite the Foundation’s administrative expenses, 100% of every dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly to pancreatic cancer research.
I never thought that cancer would be something that would affect me so directly. After having two people very close to me challenged by it, it made me realize how essential it is for us to come together and try and tackle this issue. So join my family in I with our battle against Pancreatic Cancer.
Let’s give patients a fighting chance.
