April 2018: growth[period] is proud to support PurpleStride Washington DC 2018, the walk to end pancreatic cancer, for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) is dedicated to fighting the world’s toughest cancer. Pancreatic cancer kills more Americans than breast cancer and has a five-year survival rate of just 9 percent. The disease is the third leading cause of cancer-related death, and it is projected to become the second around 2020.
Since the first walk in 2008, PurpleStride has been the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s most powerful vehicle for fundraising and awareness. Each year, in more than 50 PurpleStride events across the country, survivors, families, researchers, caregivers and others touched by pancreatic cancer come together to rewrite the future of this deadly disease.
