Gord Townley - 7 Days In May 2017
2017 will mark the 6th time we have undertaken 7 Days In May. To date, we have raised over $250,000 - 100% of which goes directly to pancreas cancer research. Pancreas Cancer remains the deadliest of the major cancers, with a first year survival rate of only 25%, and a 5 year survival rate of only 7%. The good news is that the survival rate has actually increased in recent years and with the focus of the Canadian Cancer Society, we are optimistic that the survival rate will continue to increase.
As in prior years, 7 Days In May will direct 100% of our funds raised to the Canadian Cancer Trials Group, based in Kingston, Ontario. Their current trial, PA.6, has reached it's full complement of candidates and will now move to monitoring status. We are very excited to be a key contributor to their upcoming PA.7 trial, which will focus on immunotherapy and will kick off later this year.
Our goal in 2017 is to raise more than $100,000 and as in past years, 100% of our funds raised will go to clinical trials research. All administrative fees and overheads are managed by our sponsors and our riders. Every dollar you donate will go directly to research. This is a founding principal of 7 Days and we will continue that objective for the foreseeable future.
Thank you for your support. In our lifetime, we will be able to #EndPanCan with your continued help. Ride on!
