9th Annual Lehigh Valley Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk

When Janet Wendling was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September 2008, her family was devastated to learn the statistics of this disease.  The fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in this country, more than 42,000 individuals will be diagnosed and nearly as many will die from it this year alone. 


Janet lost her battle with pancreatic cancer 72 days after diagnosis in December 2008 and her son, Todd, has been on a mission to fight the disease that changed their lives forever.  On Sunday, September 24th  the 9th Annual Lehigh Valley Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk will take place in the Lehigh Parkway in Allentown, Pa. Todd said, the walk was originally started in memory of  his mother but it is really about all the families and individuals who have been affected by this horrible disease.


Since its inception in 2009 the walk has raised over $660,000 with walkers coming from 7 different states.


“Pancreatic cancer is almost always terminal because it’s nearly impossible to detect in its early stages,” says Todd. “By the time symptoms appear, the cancer has spread. If my mom had known the disease was there, she would have started her fight sooner.  She would have had the upper hand.”


A lack of early detection methods is one reason why the disease kills nearly all who are diagnosed.  According to the National Cancer Institute, the overall 5-year relative survival rate for pancreatic cancer is just 5 percent, compared to 89 percent for breast cancer and 64 percent for colon cancer. 


Despite these numbers, pancreatic cancer receives the least amount of federal research dollars among all leading cancers.  All the money raised will go to The Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, the country’s largest private supporter of pancreatic cancer research, where 100% of every donation goes directly to research.


Ann Walsh, Director of Events, The Lustgarten Foundation, said “It is because of friends like Todd Wendling, and all of the individuals and organizations who participate at these kinds of community events, that The Lustgarten Foundation has been able to provide over $130 million for leading research, which is making significant strides in the fight against pancreatic cancer.” 


For more information and to register for the event online, visit www.lustgarten.org and click “Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk”, or call 866.789.1000. Todd can be contacted at 610-554-8250 or todd.wendling@hotmail.com.

Living Colour

During the 1980s, rock had become completely segregated and predictable, the opposite of the late '60s/early '70s, when such musically and ethnically varied artists as Jimi Hendrix, Sly & the Family Stone, and Santana ruled the Earth. But bands such as New York's Living Colour helped break down the doors by the end of the '80s, leading to a much more open-­‐minded musical landscape that would eventually pave the way for future bands (Rage Against the Machine, Sevendust, etc.). The group (singer Corey Glover, guitarist Vernon Reid, bassist Muzz Skillings, and drummer Will Calhoun) first formed in the mid-­‐'80s, with Reid being the only member with real prior band experience; he was a member of Ronald Shannon Jackson's experimental jazz outfit, and had recorded with Defunkt, Public Enemy, as well as issuing a solo album with Bill Frisell, 1984's Smash & Scatteration.
