The Betti Family

Two weeks after losing her 25-year old cousin Megan to pancreatic cancer in 2014, Annie Betti discovered Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation’s DASH for Detection, an annual walk-and-run fundraiser for early detection research. She quickly gathered a team, and 35 family members and friends came out to honor Megan. Since then, Team Megan has grown to more than 100 strong.

“It was important to us, especially to my Aunt Terry and Uncle Tony [Megan’s mom and dad], that her memory live on. This was one day a year we could come together to celebrate Megan, and all her legacy means to each of us.”

Annie’s family is a part of the Rolfe Foundation family. The connection grew when Annie’s Aunt Terry also lost her battle to pancreatic cancer, an unimaginable loss. “Terry and Megan were two of the strongest people I knew,” shared Annie. “No matter how down they were, they always fought back. So our family will continue that fight by supporting Rolfe and its mission. Their free services for personal support and funding for early detection research matters.”

“Rolfe Foundation is our extended family. It’s a safe space filled with those willing to do anything to help us at the drop of a hat. From connecting us with doctors to finding others who had similar experiences, they make us feel like we are not alone. We believe in hope. We believe in Rolfe.”
