ReproTech also sponsored its St. Paul, MN office Site Director, Jill Olson, who participated in PANCAN’s PurpleRide Twin Cities on September 18. Jill’s team, The Dollies & Rock-n-Janes’, whose members biked 25 miles in memory of parents and grandparents who lost their battles with pancreatic cancer, raised over $4,200.00 for PANCAN, with the total amount of donations for the event surpassing $290,000.00.
Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is the national organization creating hope in a comprehensive way through research, patient support, community outreach and advocacy for a cure. The organization raises money for direct private funding of research—and advocates for more aggressive federal research funding of medical breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer.
