The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, put on the Purple Stride Charlotte 5K run and walkathon Saturday at Marshall Park that I emceed. My wife, Lucille, died of the disease in 2009. More than a thousand celebrated this fund raiser totaling $130,000. Pancreatic Cancer is a devastating disease because you don’t get symptoms until it’s too late. The assortment of pictures gives you flavor of the group brought together by similar suffering. A mom, dad, brother, sister or grandparent is remembered by those left here to live. Each pair of eyes I looked into smiled with a warmth from the memories. Cherish your friends and loved ones while you can.
