Local efforts to fight pancreatic cancer took a step forward today. Blair County Business and communty leaders helped cut the ribbon today at the new location for the Greg and Cathy Griffith Family Foundation.
Cathy Griffith now runs the foundation which was established after her husband Greg was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2010. He died the next year of the disease. The foundation's goal is to find a cure for pancreatic cancer.
Right now, they're backing research into early detection. Cathy hopes to use her new office on the Diamond in Hollidaysburg to meet with pancreatic cancer patients and to raise awareness and funding to fight the disease.
