The Turpin Foundation was created in October 2008 by Jo Weinberg in honor of her husband, Graham Turpin, who died from pancreatic cancer just one month and one day after diagnosis. Both Graham and Jo worked in advertising, and today The Turpin Foundation draws its leadership from members of the advertising industry who promise to bring truly creative ideas to fighting pancreatic cancer. In addition to fund- and awareness-raising, the Foundation offers this website as a source of information for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.
