Living Hope; Your Journey with Pancreatic Cancer-A Husband becomes a advocate after losing his wife to the world’s toughest cancer

Rick Pinson and his wife Linda became involved with PanCAN’s Orange County Affiliate in 2009 after Linda was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  Rick shares his journey on why he still volunteers even after Linda’s death in 2012.  Rick remains actively involved and advocates in memory and in honor of Linda.  Rick has been a leader serving as Advocacy Chair for the past 6 years and more recently accepted another role as PurpleStride Logistics Chair for the Orange County Affiliate. 

Hear how you can make your voice heard with your Members of Congress and request funding for pancreatic cancer research.  Only on Orange County’s only Community Radio Station livestreaming from UCI Beall Applied Innovation at the Cove Thursdays at 11:00am PDT
