Please join us this July 8th at Onondaga Lake Park for our second annual Appendix Cancer Awareness Walk. Registration is from 9am to 10:30am and the walk will kick off at 11am. We are holding this walk to increase awareness and create funding for education and research to find a cure for Appendix Cancer.
Appendix Cancer is a rare cancer which reportedly is diagnosed in about 1,500 people in the U.S. each year. Doctors and specialists believe there are more people that are misdiagnosed. More work needs to be done so we can understand this rare disease better, find treatments that are successful, and hopefully find a cure for Appendix Cancer. We need to get more education out for patients and spread awareness to the public.
My father, Bob Worden, was diagnosed with Appendix Cancer in July, 2014. He is still battling this nasty rare disease daily with determination on beating this. It is my mission and goal now to bring awareness to our community. We will not give up and we will continue to spread awareness about Appendix Cancer here in the Syracuse, NY area.
The Appendix Cancer Awareness Walk is an all-volunteer effort. All proceeds will benefit Appendx Cancer research and education through the ACPMP Research Foundation 501(3)c.
With your help, we all can make a difference! We appreciate your support!
