The Griffith’s Story

It’s our desire that this website be a place for all those affected by pancreatic cancer to have their questions answered and receive support from those who’ve gone through similar situations. We believe, with this goal in mind, that this site is the first of its kind. We hope that the Griffith’s experience, as told by Cathy Griffith, will be the beginning of fulfilling that mission.

On Saturday, January 30th, Greg played two hours of basketball. He was the high scorer in the game and felt great throughout. At four o’clock that afternoon, we went to church, and I noticed that Greg looked a little yellow. Afterwards, we went to dinner. Greg said he wasn’t hungry.

A Message From Cathy Griffith

Our mission is to one day see a world without pancreatic cancer. And for that matter, to see cancer of all types completely eliminated from our world!

How do we go about doing that? The answer is simple: by giving it to God and asking His Spirit to guide us as instruments to help “FUND a cure!” What makes us unique from other cancer research foundations is that our mission is driven by the Holy Spirit. With God in control, we believe that we will see a cure for pancreatic cancer. CONTINUE READING
