Walk in Memory of Sylvia Drago
It will be seven years on Dec. 14 since my wife Sylvia passed away from Pancreatic Cancer. Our family has never forgotten the agony and suffering she went through because of this devastating illness. We have many fond and special memories but the hurt and missing her never leaves our family.
Our daughters Lisa, Deana, and their husbands Evan and Dean along with our granddaughters Alexa, Zoë, Marika and Mia decided to assist physicians and researchers work toward defeating this awful disease. We have launched a Fundraiser for Sylvia with a goal of $50,000. We have had a magnificent start with over $10,000 being raised during the first 10 days of the launch. We are planning a walk in Toronto and Sudbury in the spring. We are contacting family, friends, neighbours, businesses and others asking for help and support as well as asking to pass on our message to others they know. We have a long way to go to reach the goal.
Pancreatic Cancer is a disease with virtually no survival in the past 40 years. Pancreatic Cancer has a 92% mortality rate. The Pancreatic Cancer Canada Foundation has taken on one of the world’s most deadliest cancers. The Foundation is aggressively fighting with investments in research aimed at greater understanding of this cancer and for better treatment options. At the same time, the Foundation is concentrating and working to educate physicians about a faster diagnosis along with patients/families to support them as they face the realities of this cancer in their lives.
Will you please join the Drago family in making a difference in memory of Sylvia and to help benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Canada. Remember any and all donations will have an impact.
Our family thanks you.
