"Pancreatic cancer is the only major cancer with a five year survival rate in the single digits. That's scary, right? Instead of turning away from that scary stat, these passionate individuals use it as fuel to double survival by 2020... That's why we participate in the Purple Stride."
Earlier this month, Jacie Scott had the opportunity to speak at The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's Leadership Breakfast. Survivors, community leaders and corporate partners in the Dallas-Fort Worth area joined together to kick off the PurpleStrideDFW event set for November 11.
Jacie got personal and shared her why, including her mother's inspirational story and little fragments of her own life. Other guest speakers included PanCAN founder Pamela Acosta Marquardt, chief medical officer Victoria Manax Rutson, MD, pancreatic cancer survivor Laurie MacCaskill, and CBS 11 senior investigative reporter Ginger Allen. What an honor!
