Founded in 1999, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) is dedicated to fighting the world’s toughest cancer. In their urgent mission to save lives, they attack pancreatic cancer on all fronts: research, clinical initiatives, patient services and advocacy. Their effort is amplified by a nationwide network of grassroots support. They are determined to accelerate progress and improve patient outcomes.

The five-year survival rate is now 10 percent. Each person who dies from pancreatic cancer is a mother, daughter, father, son, husband, wife, sister, brother, colleague or friend. PanCAN fights for every one of them. Get more info about PanCAN at www.pancan.org.

Purple Stride is the largest fundraising event that benefits PanCAN. PurpleStride fuels progress. And thanks to those who fundraise for PurpleStride, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is able to continue advancing research, serving more patients and families, and being the leading provider of pancreatic cancer services and information in the world. Get more info, and register for PurpleStride at purplestride.org.

This program addressed the issue of pancreatic cancer and the efforts to mitigate the deaths caused by the disease. In this episode, Wendy spoke with Chelsey Mahlke, Nevada Marketing Chair for Anderson Dairy. Chelsey lost her grandfather to pancreatic cancer and has been a longtime supporter of the organization’s efforts to end the disease, which is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. Chelsey spoke of her personal experience with her grandfather’s struggle and also gave statistics about the disease’s symptoms and treatment options. Chelsey also informed the listeners of the upcoming Purple Stride event, which is a fundraising Walk/Run to raise money that will go toward research and treatment efforts for pancreatic cancer.
