Despite being fit and healthy, Ed was suddenly diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at the age of just 52. Documenting his journey living with the disease on his blog Mr Ed’s Race, Ed together with his wife Juliet, hold tight to faith, hope and love as they travel this unexpected journey as a family.
My husband, Ed, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer out of the blue in July 2018 after displaying no classic symptoms other than an upset stomach. I was fortunate to connect with Pancare Foundation and received a phone call from Sonia who was able to point us in the right direction for additional resources and information.
Throughout Ed’s journey, we have been lovingly supported by friends, family and work colleagues. Together, we want to raise awareness about the seriousness of this disease and fund research into early detection and effective treatments. The Walk for Hope gives us a vehicle to help get that message out there as well as provide an opportunity for our family and friends to show their support to Ed in a tangible way.
Our team, Mr Ed’s Race (named after Ed’s blog) is a combined group of our immediate family, including our two children, and extended family, friends and colleagues. We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity our networks have shown us by donating to Pancare Foundation’s Walk for Hope in support of Ed. We’ve been getting the message out there anyway we can! Through Ed’s blog, digital channels such as Facebook and WhatsApp, Ed’s workplace and even at the gym. We’ve even had international donations from Canada, the US and Hong Kong! We are truly thankful for every individual’s support and the impact that it will have on helping Pancare Foundation channel funds into research and expand patient support services.
Despite the challenges that the disease presents, our faith in God gives us a future that’s bright and we live in hope for a cure for pancreatic cancer.
