This year, The Griffith Family Foundation’s 8th Annual Sideline Pancreatic Cancer Dinner will be featuring several familiar special guest speakers.


 

 

We are thrilled to announce that Dr. A. James Moser, Executive Director of the Institute of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery at Beth Israel Deaconness Medical Center will be attending for the 8th year in a row. He has never missed a dinner since we started hosting this annual event in 2010!

 

 

 

 

Most of our supporters are probably familiar with Jack Andraka by now. In case you’re not, at 15-years-old, he developed a ground-breaking early detection test for pancreatic, ovarian, and lung cancers. Jack spoke about his research at our 3rd Annual Sideline Cancer Dinner and has been an active supporter of The Greg and Cathy Griffith Family Foundation and currently serves as one of our two official Sideline Cancer Ambassadors.

 

 

 

Erin

 

And we’re excited that Erin Willett has decided to join us yet again this year. Erin was a semi-finalist on the second season of NBC’s The Voice and was personally affected by pancreatic cancer when her father, Chuck Willett, passed away from the disease in 2011. In 2012, Erin independently released her debut EP, which is available on iTunes.
