In 2019, Julie Weiss, Hirshberg Foundation Ambassador and ‘Marathon Goddess’, began running 52 Races for 52 Faces in a year-long challenge to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer. Every race included a special dedication. Survivors and loved ones shared stories of hope, love, loss and resilience. Together, they showed the journey of patients and the people who love them. This is one of the heartfelt Never Give Up stories shared.

My father was an artist that had natural born talent, he continues to be an idol to me. No matter how much time he had, he never lost sight of his family and his love for us. He was a 2-year pancreatic cancer survivor. He was and will always be special because he was a caring father, communicative with his emotions and he helped guide me through personal experiences in life. I will always miss him.
