Windy Linde Fall Bash supports Pancreas Cancer research @ the Carbone Cancer Center

What do we know about pancreatic cancer? It’s pretty stark, but this form of cancer has a 16% survival (that means 74% likelihood of dying) the first year after diagnosis and a low 8% five-year survival rate.

Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive disease that is the third leading cause of death from cancer in the United States for which there is no cure.  Most patients live for only a few weeks or months after diagnosis and there have been no meaningful advances in detection or treatment in the last four decades, largely due to lack of funding.  Pancreatic cancer is difficult to diagnose because patients often have non-specific symptoms.   Therefore, many patients already have incurable Stage IV disease at diagnosis - meaning the cancer has spread from the pancreas to other parts of the body.  Recent advancements in immunotherapy and basic science strategies at the UW Carbone Cancer Center show hopes of finding better treatment options that will increase the quality and longevity of patient lives.

The Windy Linde Fall Bash will be donating at least 10% of Its profits to Pancreatic Cancer Research at the Carbone Cancer Center this year. Additional contributions can be made to the Pancreas Cancer Task Force at the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, 600 Highland Ave, Madison, Wi 53572,  Attention Katie Williquette.

Our WINDY LINDE GAME DAY CHALLENGE - The ribbon for Pancreatic Cancer is PURPLE!! So show your team's support by Rock'in that PURPLE!!!! The winning team will receive free entry into our spring tournament, Norski Spring Fling.


Windy Linde will also continue to collect toiletries for the UWV’s Stand Down 2018. 

United Women Veterans (UWV) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization for America’s women veterans. UWV is not affiliated with any National organization; many UWV members also belong to other veterans groups.

What is the Stand Down?

The Wayne D. Horner Memorial Stand Down, Inc. will hold an event to assist homeless veterans. We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. The local Red Cross & Dryhootch are partners.We provide services and resources to homeless veterans and their family members. This is a multi-county effort to help homeless vets. Homeless can be a vet living out on the street or a vet that is crashing in their friend or relative's home. Many of the veteran organizations in the area will be involved!

The United Women Veterans group is sponsoring the Womens' room however donations are needed for both men and women veterans that are homeless. Currently we have around 200 homeless veterans in the area. The mission of the Stand Down is to help homeless veterans become Interview and job ready.
