November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, and we’re waging hope with the help of local restaurants in Hightstown and East Windsor, N.J. In Our Dine Out for Early Detection event, just enjoy a great meal at participating restaurants, show our flier, and a portion of your dinner tab will be donated to Kelly’s Heroes to promote pancreatic cancer research.

All proceeds will be devoted to research at academic medical centers working to develop an early detection test. Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death, with a five-year survival rate of just 9 percent. The chances of survival increase dramatically if the cancer is caught early, but unfortunately there is no reliable screening test for pancreatic cancer.
Following are the locations and dates of the generous, community-minded restaurants that are participating:
- Nov. 2, 5-9 p.m., 12 Farms, 120 N. Main Street, Hightstown
- Nov. 7, 7 a.m.-4 p.m., Byrnes Deli, 117 W. Ward Street, Hightstown
- Nov. 8, Charlie Browns, 60 Princeton-Hightstown Road, East Windsor
- Nov. 19, TGIFridays, 319 US Route 130, East Windsor
Kelly’s Heroes is an East Windsor-based 501c3 inspired by Steve Kelly, who participated in two clinical trials to advance pancreatic cancer research. His cancer fight provides a legacy of hope for others facing this deadly disease.
