PurpleStride Walk to End Pancreatic Cancer

I am constantly inspired by the accomplishments, in the face of significant challenge, of our TVD community. Please join me in supporting Cathy Quon and the PurpleStride community and their fundraising walk to end pancreatic cancer. The link to her personal fundraising page is here.

“This June 3, I will participate in PurpleStride San Francisco, the walk to end pancreatic cancer, in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN). Pancreatic cancer is the world’s toughest cancer with a five-year survival rate of just 9 percent. But through PurpleStride, you can help improve patient outcomes and help PanCAN double survival by 2020.

As a 16-year pancreatic cancer survivor, I have benefited from the breakthrough treatments during my journey of surgeries and recurrences. The latest oral chemo pill I took shrunk my tumors by 15-20% and stabilized them, at least for now! We’ve got to continue funding this research so more can live.” – Cathy Quon

As always, it is my pleasure having all of you be part of The Village Doctor practice and family. Please feel free to call or email me directly with any questions or concerns. (May 2018)
