I’m so excited and honored to be a part of an incredible event in about a month – the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s PurpleStride Cleveland. Taking place on Saturday, June 16 at the beautiful Cleveland MetroParks Zoo, PurpleStride is an event to raise awareness, support and funding for pancreatic cancer. This is one of the deadliest forms of cancer. This year, over 44,000 Americans will be diagnosed with the disease, and of those, only 7,000 are expected to survive.
At this year’s PurpleStride, I will be one of the featured speakers and will have the chance to share my story of survival with the thousands of attendees and participants. Last year, over 2,500 people attended, but there were only 14 survivors. The rest were there to support someone or to walk in their memory. I’m one of the lucky ones.
I’ve shared with you that today I’m healthy and 100% cancer free. I will continue to get regular screenings, but have returned to a normal, albeit busy, life. I couldn’t be more grateful for that.
Join me in supporting this cause that is so near and dear to me. Log on today to www.purplestride.org and click on Cleveland from the list of Upcoming Events. There, you can either Register to Attend and join me at the event, or Donate to a Participant/Team if you can’t be there in person. Search for me, Josh Cantwell, or my team, Team Cantwell.
Let’s do this together – join me, my family, friends and staff at the Cleveland MetroParks Zoo on June 16 or send in a donation to help me reach my aggressive fundraising goal.
Thanks for your support!
