Scott's Story

Scott, a talented athlete and compassionate man who always put others before himself, when first diagnosed in late 2013, initially didn’t understand why him and why now.


He began to pray and ask God for guidance to fight this horrible disease.

Throughout his diagnosis, treatments, and endless days in the hospital, Scott realized his suffering was for the saving of others, so while battling his own pancreatic cancer he was preparing himself to be a testimony and to help others.

Scott’s compassion and concern for others and sparked a fire with his wife so that his fight and passing would not be in vain.

Donyel M. Jackson promised her husband that she would do everything humanly possible, and in her power, to bring awareness and early detection of pancreatic cancer to others, with the hope of eradicating it forever.

Donyel promised Scott Eli Jackson that she would fight so others would get an early diagnosis!
