Pies that save lives! That's the goal behind the eighth annual Pizza by Pappas fundraiser. It's aimed at helping fight against pancreatic cancer.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey spotlighted the event Tuesday and introduced us to the organizers of the event who have a personal connection to the cause.

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.

Half the proceeds raised from pizza sales Tuesday, November 14, and Wednesday, November 15, from Pizza by Pappas benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
