ALTOONA - Every person been affected by cancer in one way or another, and today an annual event was held in Altoona to raise money to fight the deadly disease.
 
The third annual Lou Davies pancreatic cancer walk took place at Mansion Park. The Davies family paired with the Griffith family foundation to sponsor the event.  Sylvia Davies lost her father Lou to pancreatic cancer three years ago...and she says helping others is something he would be proud of.
 
“My husbands dying wish was that we do something so that other families would not have to go through what we did and we would find a cure for pancreatic cancer so that's why we're here,” Sylvia.
 
All of the money raised today goes to the Griffith Family Foundation. If you’d like to donate, you can click here.
