Since my pancreatic cancer diagnosis last year, readers have continued to send their best wishes my way. I’m grateful for all of them. Many of you have also asked how I’m doing. The answer is: remarkably well.
Last year, my daughter Emma spearheaded our family’s participation in the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s walk in San Francisco, where she and her husband live. This year, they’re coming to Chicago for the 5K on Saturday, April 30.
In 2016, pancreatic cancer deaths will exceed the number of lives lost to breast cancer. By 2020, they’re expected to surpass the annual number of colon cancer victims. If you’d like to support efforts to increase research funding and find a cure, then please click on this link.
You don’t have to attend the 5K, but you’re welcome to join our team — TEAM WILLIS. For non-walkers, clink on the “Donate Now” button on the linked page. If you want to come along for the walk that I plan to make with the team, click on the “Join Team” button just above it.
Regardless of whether you make a monetary donation to the organization, please know that all of us Harpers appreciate your continued support.
Meanwhile, I’ll keep writing…
