Welcome to Our New Site!

We’re just getting started with it, so please be patient and please check back often for updates!

If you’d like to write a blog post sharing your thoughts about pancreatic cancer, raising funds for the walk, or anything else related to relevant topics, drop us a line. We’d like this site not only to host information about the Albany event, but also to serve as a resource of information and support for anyone affected by pancreatic cancer.

    Why do people walk?  Almost everyone has been directly affected by PC, by losing a family member or friend.  Some people walk to support friends.  But some people walk because they are curious.  They’ve heard about pancreatic cancer, and they’ve heard about the walk.  Over the years, we’ve seen more and more people who want to know about this cancer.  One person I met was passing by in his car and saw the sign, so he turned in to check it out.  Another read about the walk and was enticed by the donuts and pick-a-prize.  Hey, if that’s what it takes to get people interested in learning about PC, then so be it.  One of the Walk goals is to raise awareness of this disease and what’s being done to fight it.  I’d like to see more curiosity seekers.  I’d like to be able to have more participants at the walk who have NOT been affected by the disease.  I’d like to see more participants who have survived this disease – who have battled it and won.  I’d like to see a survival rate that reaches 80% percent and have walkers who can stand strong and say “we beat it”!  But most of all, I’d like to see the day when we can say that this cancer is no longer a killer.  So I applaud those curious people who come for some other reason than being affected by PC.  I welcome you, and hope you will spread the word.
