New York Yankees relief pitcher David Robertson aims to strike out more than just batters. By supporting the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN), Robertson hopes to help end pancreatic cancer. Robertson’s passion is driven by the memory of his father-in-law, Rick Cronin, who died from the disease in 2016. Robertson urges friends and fans to Demand Better with PanCAN during November for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month to provide hope and improve outcomes for all pancreatic cancer patients.
