In March 2005, Loie Williams of Newton, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a disease in which less than 20 percent of patients survive. As a wife and mother, her first thoughts were to remain strong for her friends and her family. She didn’t know the future path that her illness would take, but she told her husband and then thirteen-year-old son that she wasn’t going anywhere.

She is also a medical miracle living with stage IV lung cancer for nine years - four years longer than nearly all people who have the same disease. As a result, she is a champion for others; she serves as a national advocate for lung cancer awareness and research and is an athlete for charity.

What’s known as Mardi Gras for most, with a parade of floats, beads, masquerades and bright colors, has a completely different meaning, and spelling, in the PMC world.

Sarah Couture, 14, is a 2013 PMC Pedal Partner and a cancer survivor who has grown-up living, breathing and playing soccer. When she was diagnosed with aplastic anemia in 2012 and began treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund Clinic, it was no surprise that a black and white soccer ball helped to pull her through her cancer experience.
