I am participating in the Charleston 5K Pajama Run on December 8th to raise money for cancers below the waist.

I am participating in the Charleston 5K Pajama Run on December 8, 2012. I am running in memory of my dad, Frank Talbot, who passed away from pancreatic cancer. He strongly believed in the importance of cancer research and felt that he personally benefited from the research done at Hollings Cancer Center.

The Pajama Run (www.pajamarun.org) envisions a day when cancer’s silent killers, particularly those found below the waist like colorectal, prostate, ovarian and pancreatic will be preventable and someday curable. Preventing these cancers through proper screenings is essential to the Pajama Run's mission. Often these screenings carry social stigmas; stigmas that can carry a death sentence if the cancer is not discovered early. Therefore, increasing awareness of these screenings is one of the Pajama Run's main goals.

The Pajama Run also promotes major advances in scientific research and medical treatments that will someday lead to a cure of cancers below the waist. All donations you make are tax deductible.

Won't you please help by donating to this good cause today?
