The Rallye for Pancreatic Cancer is organized by a committee led by Mark Schlegel, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in April of 2015. The goal is to increase awareness of pancreatic cancer and help fund research for an early detection test to diagnose this disease. All proceeds support a landmark pancreatic cancer research study at WCHN being led by Dr. Richard Frank, a hematologist/oncologist and the Director of Clinical Cancer Research at the WCHN Biomedical Research Institute in Danbury and Norwalk Hospital’s Whittingham Cancer Center.

To date, the Rallye for Pancreatic Cancer organization has donated over $60,000 to Dr. Frank’s research study.
