Description

Cowboy Up for a Cure & “Wage Hope” Western Style is a fundraising event that will be held on November 9th at the Benton County Quail Barn to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. It will be an evening to enjoy food, beverage and silent auction while being entertained by Junction 80. The night is being organized by volunteers of the Northwest Arkansas chapter of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network which works throughout the year to support the National efforts to fund research, advocate for government focus and funding in addition to supporting patients and families dealing with this tragic diagnosis.

Sadly, Pancreatic Cancer surpassed Breast Cancer in 2015 and became the 3rd leading cause of cancer related deaths in the United States and it is projected to take the 2nd position by 2020, so now is the time to take action and change the course of history for this disease. Our goal is to DOUBLE SURVIVAL by 2020 and get the current five year survival rate out of the single digits. We are making strides to accomplish this objective by seeing an improvement from only 6% in 2013 to now 9% in 2017, but we have to do more at a faster pace to “Wage Hope” for the 53,000 plus patients that will get this diagnosis this year; 500 of those people will be from Arkansas.

Eighty-five cents of every dollar raised for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network goes directly back into funding research and patient care; so you can clearly see how your contribution absolutely makes a difference in helping us “Wage Hope” and achieve our goals to DOUBLE SURVIVAL. We thank you for your consideration in attending our event and supporting our efforts to “Wage Hope”!
