A Love for Life

Help Fund A Cure.
Our sole purpose is bringing our community together to have fun and fund the researchers at the Abramson Cancer Center at Penn. We do this in honor of those we have lost to pancreatic cancer but also, more importantly, to improve outcomes for those who are facing this challenge today.

Should you have any questions or wish to consider corporate sponsorship, contact Christine Edmonds at

Make a Difference.
Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. There are over 44,000 new cases each year, and few standard treatment options.The five-year survival rate is only 12%, making it one of the deadliest cancers. There are still no early detection tools that are effective in finding pancreatic cancer in its early stages. We want to help fund research that will help change these statistics, and offer hope to those who are affected by this disease.
  • donate ANY amount
  • 100% tax deductible and every single dollar you donate will help unlock new treatment options
  • Host your own AL4L event
  • LIKE us on Facebook/ Instagram
