Posted in charities, non-profits on November 2, 2021 by OC Talk Radio

Jenny Isaacson was attending a conference when she heard Julie Fleshman, President and CEO of The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, speak about her vision of progress to double the survival rate for pancreatic cancer by the year 2020.  Jenny was so impressed by Julie and her vision that she also wanted to be part of that vision. Jenny picked up the phone called Julie, that was ten years ago.  Though Jenny has filled different positions since joining PanCAN her position now allows her to oversee partnerships including the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition.  Learn more about PanCAN, the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition and why it is so important to have a month, November and a day, November 18, dedicated to pancreatic cancer?  Only on OC Talk Radio, Orange County’s Only Community Radio Station which streams live from @UCI Beall Applied Innovation Center #WPCD 

This episode of Living Hope is dedicated to Brenda Coleman a 13 year pancreatic cancer survivor at the time of her death.

“At the end of the day, I want everyone to know that our experiences with pancreatic cancer can serve a purpose. Every experience, everyone’s journey, can bring hope and inspiration, if we all work together to make a difference.”

Many years ago, our guest suffered a debilitating car injury, severing his sciatica leading to long lasting pain and loss of function in his left leg. Since then, he’s refused to give up, logging long bike rides for both physical and mental well being. And when that became too physically hard, he found a whole new way to pursue his passions of “birding and biking” when he walked into a Pedego Electric bike store in Wheaton, Illinois (50 miles from his home) and rode out with his new ebike. 

Logging in over 5000 miles in his first six months as he follows his heart and goes where few bird watchers can manage on long trips thru long forgotten trails from Green Bay to the Mississippi.  Like Johnny Appleseed, sowing smiles along the way and seeing what most others miss.

Listen as he recounts his routes and share in his indominable spirit and determination to always see what’s over the next horizon. And go where the wild geese go. Here on the Pedego Podcast and EBike Revolution…
