Our goal is to raise dollars directly towards research in order to find a cure for this disease and provide support for families affected by the disease. Each year, our board members will vote on specific organizations that will be the recipients of our fundraising dollars. Last year, it was the decision of our Board to give the majority of our fundraising dollars to a research study at Lehigh Valley Health Network that is looking for ways to detect pancreatic cancer at its earliest stage, or even before it develops! The study is led by Dr. Rohit Sharma. We also provided funding to the Cancer Support Community and a private research through the Alliance of Families Fighting Pancreatic Cancer (AFFPC) led by the renowned Dr. A. James Moser and his team of dedicated pancreatic surgeons in order to find a cure through clinital trials of actual pancreatic tumors.
At the conclusion of our annual event, our board will vote on where to send our fundraising dollars, keeping in mind our goal of better research and ultimately a cure of this disease.
