"Cancer has affected nearly every human on this plant, whether you've fought it yourself, lost a loved one to it, or best case, watched someone beat it...take that cancer! In 2009 our family lost the strongest man we knew, my father. He endured a battle with pancreatic cancer for 15 months, and outlasted it long enough to see his eldest child graduate college, a promise he made me when he was diagnosed. His fight to fulfill his final promise to me, against great odds, is my motivation to support a cause that may someday end the fight with cancer. I am IN to live on the legacy of my father, and honor his battle with cancer by raising awareness and funding to further the advancements in cancer research. 10 years ago when my father was diagnosed, the five-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer was 2%, today it's approaching 7%...look out cancer, here we come!"
Fun Fact: I'm a HUGE Mariners fan, even though they haven't made the playoffs in 18 years. I sat in Section 117, Row 4, Seat 6 for Game 5 of the 1995 ALDS victory over the New York Yankees. Watching Edgar hit "The Double" off the left field wall, and Griffey scoring the winning run, it is still my fondest memory.
