Raise Against Pancreatic Cancer
UAB medical school held a fundraiser in support of pancreatic cancer research this Saturday from 8-10p.m. There was a 5k run and walk.
Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cancer in America to lung, breast, and. It has the lowest five year relative survivial rate of all major cancers because 74% of patients will die in the first year of diagnosis.
This year, an estimated 45,220 people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the United States, and approximately 38,460 will die from the disease.
Lou Ellen Williams, Pancreatic Cancer Action Media Representative, lost her father to pancreatic cancer and supports the event every year.
“These are some obvious reasons I support this cause.”
Ronda Robinson from Fox Channel 6 was the emcee for the event.
Cancer Center Director Edward Partridge, M.D., has been working with this cancer and it’s latest advancements in cancer research and future plans. He has also partnered with Cancer Center faculty Donald Buchsbaum, Ph.D., and Pablo Arnoletti, M.D.
