Pancreatic Cancer Association of WNY PO Box 24580 Rochester, NY 14624
Our beginnings were humble.
Our mission keeps us humble.
Three women discovered an unlikely and unfortunate bond that would change their lives forever.Pancreatic Cancer, these three ladies found that they had more in common than they could ever have imagined -- they were all from the Rochester area, and were fighting pancreatic cancer in some way. Judy Rockafellow and Mary Pettinaro had lost a husband and a brother in 2009 respectively, and Lynn Platt's mother, who passed in 2010,
was fighting the disease at the time. Their fervent desire to battle back and fight this dreadful disease was the first step taken towards our collective fight against pancreatic cancer.
Today and beyond tomorrow...
We continue to expand our outreach efforts beyond the annual walk to educate the community about pancreatic cancer (symptoms, risk factors, research progress) and provide support to patient/families.
OUR MISSION: to create awareness, raise funds, and advocate for those affected by pancreatic cancer.
Pancreatic Cancer Association of WNY is committed to
