Each year, more than 45,000 Americans are lost to pancreatic cancer
—parents, grandparents, siblings, children, friends and other beloved members of our communities. And because pancreatic cancer
does not discriminate, it also claims the lives of national figures whose loss is felt not only by their immediate family members and friends but by the entire country and even around the world. Unfortunately, 2020 saw the loss of two such figures to pancreatic cancer: Civil Rights icon and 17-term Georgia Congressman John Lewis
on Friday, July 17 and Equal Rights champion and longtime U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
on Friday, Sept. 18.
