He read that in 2013, an estimated 45,220 people will be diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and 38,460 will die from the disease. The proclamation also designates the month of November 2013 as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month.

Weinstein who is involved in the Pancreatic Action Network, a national organization serving the pancreatic cancer community nationwide, asked Fernandez to, in his absence, give the public information about the upcoming Purple Stride Walk on Nov. 10 in Parsippany at the Mack Cali Business Campus. The event will serve as a fundraiser for research for pancreatic cancer. For more information visit
