Dear Mr. Mahalak,
We are astounded!! Not quite sure how to express how much we appreciate your support. Your gift of $12,371 assures that we will continue in our efforts to raise funds and awareness to fight the horrible disease known as pancreatic cancer. We both know now just how devastating it is.
We feel great about the progress we have made so far. Last year we really gained some ground and know that people are starting to find out about us. We plan to continue creating events to raise funds and awareness for pancreatic cancer. Last year we were able to give $20,000 towards research.
By November, we plan to have some informational pamphlets available at local cancer centers, medical facilities and other key points for those facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Many of us felt like we were really at a loss for where to start seeking information when we were in that situation. A local restaurant will host a fundraiser in October and we hold a PurpleLight Vigil in November.
You have been instrumental in moving PCAP forward and I am forever grateful. I really every little bit we can do will someday make the difference for different outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients.
It was such a pleasure meeting you all and we thoroughly enjoyed the 18 Aces to Conquer Cancer dinner. Hope to see you again! Stay well!
