Tuesday 14th September 2010: Hello everyone,
Today sees the launch of PanCAN's "Be a Hero in the Fight Against Pancreatic Cancer: Know it. Fight it. End it" campaign headed up by Lisa. You can read the PanCAN press release here and watch Lisa's video supporting the campaign by clicking here.
Lisa is asking for your help - remember Patrick by joining in the fight against this terrible disease. Here is an extract from Lisa's message from the PanCAN press release:
"Patrick often played a hero in his films and television shows. He was a real-life hero to me, our family, friends, and beloved by so many. He knew that true heroes are everyday folks–those who rise above their own pain and grief to make a difference in the lives of others. You can be one of them.
Please join me and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in becoming a hero in the fight against pancreatic cancer.
Go to www.knowitenditfightit.org today, watch my video, hear my story–and then tell us yours.
Thank you for your support and heroic action
Lisa Niemi Swayze"
