National Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day
Patty Virgilio is in Washington D.C. to participate in the National Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day. It is a two-day event where a passionate group of individuals unite on Capitol Hill to meet with members of Congress to urge them to make pancreatic cancer a national priority. These individuals travel from all 50 states and are comprised of survivors, caregivers, researchers, healthcare professionals, volunteers and loved ones of those impacted by the disease.
Patty has been fighting pancreatic cancer for over 5 1/2 years and will speak in front of Florida legislators (Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Bill Nelson and Congressman Vern Buchanan) on June 19, 2018. She will have a few minutes to tell them why they should vote to increase funding for pancreatic cancer research.
