“We are very excited about the launch of our Fifth Annual Culhane’s Celtic Open golf tournament. This year we are all remembering Pat McLaughlin who founded the FLPCC. Sadly, Pat passed in 2015. He is sorely missed but fondly remembered. This will be a fun way to spend some time with friends and family on the golf course while raising funds to raise local money for local research of pancreas cancer and remembering our friend Pat,” said Anna Murphy, President of the FLPCC.
The goal of the FLPCC is to invest in local, yet world class, pancreas cancer research where our local neighbors can feel that they are part of the team and actually see and experience where their money is going and what it is accomplishing. Our simple motto is this: “Local money for local world class pancreas cancer research.” Florida Pancreas Cancer Coalition, Inc. (FLPCC) has a Board with active committee members for the purpose of raising local money for local research. Pancreas cancer affects all demographics and 85-percent of those diagnosed will die within six months and of the remaining 15-percent only one-third have a survival rate more than four years. With diminishing funding and the devastating nature of pancreas cancer the FLPCC believes in raising money in a transparent manner on a local level so that all can see the progress to cure this cancer.
