Everyone says that huge events can stop time…the Kennedy assassination, the Challenger explosion, 9/11. Everyone can remember what they were doing when news of those events surfaced. April 19, 2008 is one of those days for me. It was the day I lost my mom to pancreatic cancer. She battled this unforgiving cancer for six long and short months before it took her. The pain for my family has yet to go away, and we are not sure if it ever will.
This suffering has to end, for those who are diagnosed with the disease and for those who have lost or will lose loved ones from this disease. Each year, more and more Americans are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and each year more and more Americans die from this deadly cancer. We can make a difference, even if only creating awareness.
Over the last nine years we have raised over $31k for the Siteman Cancer Center in St. Louis, MO, and more specifically, their pancreatic cancer research and treatment team – which treats patients right here in the Midwest.
Please join us on Sunday April 22nd at White Oak Park in Bloomington, IL for the 10th Annual Tulip 5k Walk/Run for a Cure to benefit the Siteman Cancer Center Pancreatic Cancer unit. Race begins at 1pm.
Registration fee is $25 prior to April 12th; $30 after April 12th and race day. T-shirt is guaranteed if registered by 4/12, otherwise it is first come first serve.
ONLINE REGISTRATION AVAILABLE SOON!
Be a part of the BATTLE, the FIGHT, and the WIN!
