A message from Scott Meller
“In 2015, I lost my father to pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer causes few symptoms and when they emerge, it’s often when the cancer is no longer curable through any treatments. This was the case with my father, Sol Meller. Although he fought like hell, once he was diagnosed, it was too late.
Since 2015, Feldmar Watch Company has been proud to participate in the LA Cancer Challenge, a terrific event organized by the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. The event helps raise funds for research and programs designed to improve patient care, offer better treatment options and, ultimately, find a cure for pancreatic cancer. Each year, we participate as “Team Sol” in the LA Cancer Challenge 5k and I hope you will support us.”
-Scott Meller, President
