|Unite to Fight Pancreatic Cancer!|
|It was two weeks after our 50th wedding anniversary that Merrill was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. Prior to that Merrill was working out at the gym three times a week and was on no medications. There is no warning, it is a sleeping enemy that strikes unexpectedly. The devastating stats is that this is the 4th leading cause of cancer death and is the only major cancer with a survival rate in the single digits. 6% survive 5 years. Aprox 75% die in the first year, most in 6 months, for Merrill it was just under six months. 44,000 will be diagnosed this year, 33,000 will die. Sadly, it is growing each and every year. We are raising funds by walking in Merrill's name, Miles for Merrill to honor him. I pray you won't have to honor a loved one next year. |
