Pancreatic Cancer Action Network

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is the global leader accelerating the pace of research progress for one of the world’s deadliest cancers. With an urgent mission to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and double survival by 2020, the organization, founded in 1999, executes a bold and comprehensive strategy to Wage Hope through research, patient services, advocacy and community engagement. The organization’s visionary goals, world-class programs and services, extensive grassroots network, patient-focused outcomes and advisory board of scientific and medical leaders, provide the critical backdrop to help pancreatic cancer patients today and create transformational change for all patients in the future.

Thanks for visiting my page!

 

Some of my fondest memories of growing up are of the summers I spent in Amarillo with my grandparents, Mary Martha Oles and Pat Oles.  I cherish all of the time we spent together, but remain deeply saddened that we lost my grandfather to pancreatic cancer in 2013.  Until I saw it firsthand, I had no idea how aggressive the disease was.  I remain troubled by the fact that there is no early detection method for this devastating illness - most patients are diagnosed in the late stages and treatment options are limited. Even more troubling - pancreatic cancer has surpassed breast cancer and is now the third leading cause of cancer-related death in the US, but continues to lag behind in awareness and fundraising.  

 

It is for this reason that I will be running my first 5K on April 1 in honor of Pat Oles.  I'd love for you to join me in the fight against pancreatic cancer by donating toward the cause.  Your donations will go towards scientific research and patient services aimed to improve the lives of those diagnosed.  Please help me honor a great man while we Wage Hope against a terrible disease!
