Ellen's Legacy Walk

Here are some pictures of our amazing walk to support pancreatic cancer awareness. Did you know November was national pacreatic cancer month? Do you even know what pancreatic cancer is? Do you know what your pancreas does? This time last year my answer to all these questions was "no." Unlucky for me, I got to learn the right answers the hard way!

Please take a moment to learn a bit about pancreatic cancer by visiting http://www.pancan.org/. Unfortunately this is a type of cancer that has no good warning signs, but perhaps by spreading awareness we can see a change in the funding that is made available to this type of cancer so that future patients have treatment options available that do more than give a 50% change for 12 weeks. The current options are just that grim.
