Erin Townley's Fundraising Page
I am participating in 7 Days In May, a cycling event and fundraiser founded in 2012 to increase awareness about pancreas cancer and to raise funds to help find a cure for this deadly affliction. This year, I'm once again joining the group of 30 cyclists riding around Lake Ontario in 7 days. We will ride approximately 1,150km over the course of those 7 days, averaging 160km per day.
Pancreas cancer is one of the most lethal forms of cancer: 95% of those afflicted die within the first 5 years, and a shocking 75% die within the first year. Surgery offers the best chance for long term survival. Only 15% of patients are diagnosed early enough to be eligible for surgery. Approximately 52% of all patients are diagnosed when the disease has spread to surrounding organs leaving little hope for survival (only 2% will survive ten years).
100% of funds collected will be donated to the PA.6 NCIC Clinical Trial running out of Kingston, Ontario. This trial focuses on finding a cure for this terrible disease.
Donate today and together we can help #EndPanCan!
