Mavs! National Champs

Watching the Mavs!  Last quarter and lookin good!

Pat, Garrett and I made it home safe and sound from the basketball tournament.  Today Garrett's game was payed in Denton, so our drive from Allen wasn't that far. 

This is a short week, as Pat and I leave for Tulsa Wednesday.  We are going to take the RV since we will be there through Saturday.  Please begin praying now for Pat's PET and CT Scans that will be done on Thursday.  We are both encouraged, hopeful and very prayerful as we wait. 

Pancreatic Advocacy Day is Tuesday, June 14th. Please consider participating in the annual National Call-In on Tuesday, June 14th. You will be asked to make three brief, yet very important calls that day.

What is the National Call-In?
The National Call-in is an opportunity for all Pancreatic Cancer Action Network supporters across the country to join together with one voice to tell Congress that while you can't attend Advocacy Day in person, you believe that the time has come for Congress to take action and make pancreatic cancer research a national priority!

How does it work?
On Monday, June 13th, 2011, you will receive an email with instructions on how to place the calls to your two U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative. The email will include their office phone numbers, and what we'd like for you to say. The calls should take less than 5 minutes of your time, but will significantly impact our efforts to make the pancreatic cancer community heard. To ensure you receive the email with these instructions, sign up here to become an e-Advocate. Information about the National Call-In will also be available at on June 14.

Mark your calendar today!
More than 2,000 phone calls were placed to Congress during the 2010 National Call-In. These calls were a tremendous help in augmenting the in-person meetings with elected officials and their staff on Advocacy Day. Please mark your calendar now for the 2011 National Call-In on June 14th and ask your friends and family to do the same. With your help, we can double the amount of calls that are placed to members of Congress during this year's Advocacy Day and make sure that legislators hear our message loud and clear: Pancreatic Cancer: Know It. Fight It. End It!

Questions? If you have any questions about the Fifth Annual Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day, please contact our Government Affairs and Advocacy Department at or 202-742-6699.

The above was on the Pancan website.  I wanted to pass this along to you to help us fight!
