In 2019, out of the 56,700 people who will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, 46,000 will not survive. These are sobering numbers and Barbara Foley of the Ron Foley Foundation is here to raise awareness to help fight this deadly disease.
In this episode of the Experience We-Ha Podcast, Jeff and Ryan learn more about Barbara and about her late husband, Ron Foley. Ron was diagnosed with the disease in 2004 and passed away a year later – which inspired her to help others in need who are diagnosed and suffering from pancreatic cancer.
Listen in and learn more about Barabara’s journey and how you can get involved during World Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in November.
