Linda, Michelle, Jennifer and Richard are coordinating the esophageal awareness event at Topgolf in Glendale, Arizona:

“This fundraiser is in honor of Scott E. Dye who passed away from stage IV Esophageal Cancer on December 13th, 2015.  It seems like only just yesterday we found out our father was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Our father went to the hospital for chest pain on 11/13/15 and after the CAT scan was completed the doctors found a mass on his liver.  That is when his primary doctor did more tests (endoscopy) and blood work and results came back with esophageal cancer stage IV on 11/30/15. Once the cancer was known there was nothing but vomiting, nausea and dehydration that came from it in the coming days and weeks. It was like we were watching him quickly go downhill just days after he was diagnosed. During this time a port was put in so that chemotherapy could start and the goal was to FIGHT and beat this nightmare. By 12/9/15 he was transported back to the hospital due to a stomach hemorrhage. He was clinging to his life as his kidneys started to fail. Our father was placed in ICU and was too weak to start his chemo. This was all happening way too fast and we couldn’t process that he was diagnosed with cancer let alone that he passed away on 12/13/15 just a month after symptoms and diagnoses was given.

To see someone you love pass away in front of your eyes is the most unexplainable feeling you can have and you will remember it forever.  We wanted to find away to help with funding and research. So we have teamed up with The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation as a way to raise awareness and remember our father, and to help others become aware of symptoms and early detection of cancer.”

Maria’s Story: Lead event coordinator of the 1st Annual Frank Pasquerella Esophageal Cancer Walk/Run, Maria, lost her husband, Frank, to esophageal cancer.

img_0330-1-2

This fundraiser is in honor of Frank Pasquerella—husband, father, son, brother, friend, teacher, and mentor—who passed away from stage IV esophageal cancer.

Frank’s journey with this illness was typical of many who suffer from this disease. The worrisome signs (hoarseness, heartburn, hiccupping, reflux and difficulty breathing) were misdiagnosed, and it was only after Frank began having difficulty swallowing that an endoscopy was scheduled. A biopsy of the tumor resulted in a diagnosis of esophageal cancer on February 18, 2020, and, like many people, the remaining course of this disease was swift and he passed away on August 7, 2020.

Frank lived his last days with grit and grace, but also with the awareness of a life well lived and a recognition of what he achieved. Frank had an accomplished 28-year career as a high school band director, teaching hundreds of students who fondly referred to him as “Mr. P.” When not at school, Frank pursued his varied interests such as biking, golfing, following NASCAR, Drum Corps, and, most importantly, supporting and fostering his daughters’ Irish dance and musical talents. His passion for teaching and mentoring, famously quick wit and dry sense of humor, keen intellect, and love for his family and friends, will be his lasting legacy.

Through this first annual Frank Pasquerella Memorial Walk/Run, our family would like to spread awareness of esophageal cancer, advocate for those families facing this disease, and raise money to help fund research.

 

Thank you, Sponsors!

Stacey’s Story:  Lead event coordinator, Stacey Wright, lost her father to esophageal cancer on April 28, 2016, less than 3 months from his diagnosis and only 5 months from when her father first began to notice symptoms.

“To say watching his demise was heartbreaking, is an understatement.  I miss my Dad so much.  I would give anything to have him here with me today.  The reality though, is that I can’t have Dad back.  I had to find a way to redirect my sadness and anger, and at the same time, to do right by him. I decided to coordinate an event to support this cause, to raise awareness and to honor the best man I have ever known.  

I am extremely excited and hope to see you at the walk in April!  If you are unable to attend but would consider making a monetary donation, I would be most appreciative and grateful.  If this event can provide awareness or result in an early detection for just one person, then this walk will be an absolute, complete success!!!”

The event aims to spread awareness of esophageal cancer while raising money for advocacy and esophageal research funding.

Dara’s Story:  Lead event coordinator of the Esophageal Cancer Awareness Run/Walk NYC, Dara, lost her father to esophageal cancer.

1st Annual Esophageal Cancer Awareness Run NYC New York City Brooklyn The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation“My father Joseph M. was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in late 2008. Like many others who find out too late that they have this disease, my father suffered from heartburn, acid reflux and indigestion – symptoms that doctors would only prescribe strong antacids for during the course of many years prior to his being diagnosed.

After numerous prescriptions that covered up the real problem, my father’s cancer surfaced after food became lodged against a tumor deep inside of his esophagus one afternoon when we were out having dinner together.

Even though he battled the disease for 2 years and passed away in October, 2010, the hopes that other families won’t have to share this same story seems unlikely – as this cancer is taking more lives every year. I’ve joined various esophageal cancer awareness groups on social media to find that a shocking number of fatality stories are similar to mine and that not much has changed in terms of early detection and treatment/surgeries.

After calling several advocacy groups and fundraising race organizations to find out about an event that brings awareness to esophageal cancer , I found that there was a need to generate more attention for this cancer in New York City. In January 2019, I began a partnership with the Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation and pursued a 5K race event in Brooklyn’s own Marine Park with a race organization, elitefeats, where I could promote education on the disease and give others the tools to take their digestive health seriously. My hope and goal is for participants and volunteers to help spread knowledge about EC so we can change the stories of the future into those of survival.”

Joe had a special way with people and touched many lives upon his journey. Being a wonderful husband, father, mentor, and friend, it was easy to see that Joe always had a special way with people. He loved to see people grow to their fullest potential and invested his personal time and energy to help them get there. As founder and CEO of Synergy, Joe was reliably dedicated to his team, working side by side with them and planting the seeds that have blossomed into the thriving enterprise that is Synergy today. The time and love he invested into his business and family are lessons beyond text books that will be carried on for years to come. 

Synergy PSM Corporation has partnered with The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Foundation for our inagural Joe Hagedorn Memorial Golf Outing to raise funds for esophageal cancer research in memory of Joe. The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization that funds research and contributes to spreading esophageal cancer awareness. All donations are greatly appreciated, and tax deductible.

Esophageal cancer is considered one of the fastest growing cancers in the United States, and one of the deadliest cancers with only ~19% of all patients surviving five years. Despite these statistics, esophageal cancer research remains extremely underfunded. With a lack of early screening methods, the disease typically presents at later stages when the cancer has spread to distant regions of the body. Further research into the disease is crucial to changing these statistics.  Thank you again for your support!

Meryl Levine is the lead coordinator of this event and lost her father to esophageal cancer.

“Esophageal Cancer is a preventable, treatable disease if caught early. My dad was a physician, tasked with taking care of people’s feet. He was strong, generous, and smart….a force to be reckoned with before cancer brought him and us to our knees. I won’t go into how my brother had to clean the blood off the bathroom floor, as he lay in a hospital bed. I won’t tell you how difficult it was to see my once proud father have trouble just getting out of bed. I also won’t tell you how it wasn’t cancer that killed my dad…it was the treatment that, in the end, got him. We need to find a better way of treating and battling cancer. Chemo is toxic and kills not only cancer cells but healthy cells as well. Through research, we may one day win this fight. If I can help prevent one family from having to experience the pain and degradation my family went through, then my father’s fight to live was worthwhile. And the fight that was his is now mine. I gladly accept this challenge.”

Joy Parrish, Lindsey Parrish and Monica Winn, are coordinating the esophageal awareness event in Colorado.

“This fundraiser is in honor of our father/husband, Roy Ivan Parrish, who passed away from Stage IV Esophageal Cancer on July 20th, 2014.

Our father began to experience symptoms of a cold in the spring of 2013. It seemed like a common cold, but he could not kick the side effects. His primary doctor decided to do some blood work and that is when the results showed we were dealing with more than just a cold.

Our father had suffered from GERD for many years and this had turned into Barrett’s esophagus. However, he was diligent in his checkups and always went in for his scopes in a timely manner. By the time blood work came back, he was diagnosed with Stage IV esophageal cancer in June 2013. The doctors said the cancer was aggressive and it grew very fast. We had another year of life with our father, but it was a tough one. As anyone knows that has experienced medical trials, there were a lot of ups and downs.

We wanted to find a way to help with researching and funding for esophageal cancer. As we began to look, there was not a lot of information or funding out there. For this event, our goal is to provide awareness of the causes of esophageal cancer, how important early detection is, and to help fund any medical advances possible.

Lastly, this is for Ivan, Texas A&M class of ‘76 alum (go Aggies!), and who was able to battle cancer without losing his great sense of humor!”

Creve Coeur Park – Tremayne Shelter

13725 Marine Ave, St. Louis, MO, 63146

DONATE: Make a tax-deductible donation, click here.

Lead event coordinator, Stacey Wright, lost her father to esophageal cancer on April 28, 2016, less than 3 months from his diagnosis and only 5 months from when her father first began to notice symptoms.

“To say watching his demise was heartbreaking, is an understatement.  I miss my Dad so much.  I would give anything to have him here with me today.  The reality though, is that I can’t have Dad back.  I had to find a way to redirect my sadness and anger, and at the same time, to do right by him. I decided to coordinate a “walkathon” to support this cause, to raise awareness and to honor the best man I have ever known.  

I am extremely excited and hope to see you at the walk in April!  If you are unable to attend but would consider making a monetary donation, I would be most appreciative and grateful.  If this event can provide awareness or result in an early detection for just one person, then this walk will be an absolute, complete success!!!”

The event aims to spread awareness of esophageal cancer while raising money for advocacy and esophageal research funding.

Michelle’s Virtual Running Streak 2018 for Esophageal Cancer Awareness & Research

To visit the Crowdrise page, please click here.

Michelle M. hosted a running streak throughout the month of April, 2018 to raise awareness and funding for advocacy and research.  Michelle lost her father to esophageal cancer in June, 2016.

“I love to run and have been an avid runner since high school. Running helps to keep me centered.  From the time of [my father’s] diagnosis to the time that he passed away, it was only 3 months. When he had trouble swallowing at Thanksgiving dinner 3 months before his diagnosis, we thought it was a residual effect of a previous stroke he had.  We knew nothing about esophageal cancer.

LAWRENCE FARRELL, JR - Michelle M. Running Streak 2018 Esophageal Cancer Awareness Early Detecion Research - The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research FoundationApril is Esophageal Cancer Awareness Month. The great people at the Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation, based out of Rhode Island, have provided such wonderful support through this process. Therefore, for the month of April, I will be going on a “running streak” to raise money for esophageal cancer research and to raise awareness for esophageal cancer.

A “running streak” typically consists of running at least 1 mile a day for a certain amount of time. I will run every day of April with a goal of 100 miles by the end of the month. I am going to match each mile with a $1 donation to the Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation.  In addition to raising money, I am also going to raise awareness of esophageal cancer. I will be providing facts regarding esophageal cancer throughout the month. We only had 3 months from the time of diagnosis. With more awareness and earlier diagnosis, I am hopeful that others will have more time with their loved ones.

Please join me on this journey. Whether it’s matching each mile with me (running or through donations), a one-time donation, or words of encouragement and support, any and all efforts are very much appreciated. Thank you so much and please follow my fundraising page on Facebook as I log my miles and provide information regarding esophageal cancer.”

Joy, Monica and Lindsey’s Story: “This fundraiser is in honor of our father/husband, Roy Ivan Parrish, who passed away from Stage IV Esophageal Cancer on July 20th, 2014.

Our father began to experience symptoms of a cold in the spring of 2013. It seemed like a common cold, but he could not kick the side effects. His primary doctor decided to do some blood work and that is when the results showed we were dealing with more than just a cold.

Our father had suffered from GERD for many years and this had turned into Barrett’s esophagus. However, he was diligent in his checkups and always went in for his scopes in a timely manner. By the time blood work came back, he was diagnosed with Stage IV esophageal cancer in June 2013. The doctors said the cancer was aggressive and it grew very fast. We had another year of life with our father, but it was a tough one. As anyone knows that has experienced medical trials, there were a lot of ups and downs.

We wanted to find a way to help with researching and funding for esophageal cancer. As we began to look, there was not a lot of information or funding out there. For this event, our goal is to provide awareness of the causes of esophageal cancer, how important early detection is, and to help fund any medical advances possible.

Lastly, this is for Ivan, Texas A&M class of ‘76 alum (go Aggies!), and who was able to battle cancer without losing his great sense of humor!”
