A Love for Life Trenton 5K/10K/Half Marathon!

Team Scott McCraney at the 2013 Philadelphia Marathon.
Someone I love has pancreatic cancer.
I want to do something to honor that person as well as raise money for research to improve the odds for
others who are suffering now. When you donate on this page, the money goes directly to a dedicated research team at PENN, and your donation is 100% tax-deductible.
You may post a message for me as well!
If you would like to race or run or walk in honor of someone you love, contact Christine Edmonds- christine@aloveforlife.us


This is a ruthless disease.
Pancreatic cancer is difficult to detect until it is too late. The average survival rate for stage IV pancreatic cancer is a little over 6 months - 180 days to get your life in order and say goodbye to those you love. It is slated to become the second leading cause of cancer death in the next few years. We want to help change those numbers. We are honored to be partnering with the Abramson Cancer Center at The University of Pennsylvania. 100% of the money that we raise will fund cutting edge research here in Philadelphia.
Please Give.
Any amount you donate will help to make a difference.

Money for Research will make the Difference.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the few cancers for which survival has not improved substantially over nearly 40 years.
Pancreatic cancer is a leading cause of cancer death largely because there are no detection tools to diagnose the disease in its early stages when surgical removal of the tumor is still possible.
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) spent an estimated $105.3 million on pancreatic cancer research in 2012. This represented a mere 1.8% of the NCI's approximate $5.8 billion cancer research budget for that year.

A Love for Life also works to raise awareness for this disease, and pushes for increased funding from the NCI.
  • Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers.
  • 74% of patients die within the first year of diagnosis.
  • An estimated 46,420 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the U.S., and over 39,590 will die from the disease.
  • 94% of pancreatic cancer patients will die within five years of diagnosis - only 6% will survive more than five years.
  • The average life expectancy after diagnosis with metastatic disease is just three to six months.
