The Jenny McGovern Pancreatic Cancer Clinical Database
Our good friend and mentor, Jenny Taaffe, suffered a devastating diagnosis in August 2018. After the most courageous, graceful and inspirational battle she passed away on August 7th of this year, aged 41.
All proceeds from this fundraiser will be used to directly establish The Pancreatic Cancer Clinical Database in association with St Vincent’s Hospital. This is a vital tool and building block for the advancement of Pancreatic Cancer Primary Care, research initiatives and genetic advancements in the fight against this cancer.
