Former WWE developmental Diva, Bobbi Billard, is attempting to raise money for PANCAN, a cause that helps research and fight pancreatic cancer. Having lost her own father to the illness, her goal is to raise $1 million dollars in charity.
[notice]Dear Friends –
Thank you so much for helping me reach my goal to raise $1 million to fight pancreatic cancer! I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer when I was only 19, and my whole world crumbled. I watched him suffer from this horrible disease and knew that I didn’t want anyone else to go through what he went through.
Pancreatic cancer has the worst survival rate and is the most under funded of all major cancers. 76% of pancreatic cancer patients will die within 12 months from their diagnosis, and a mere 6% survive for five years!!! The only way to change the horrible statistics is to raise as much money as possible for research! We’ve seen what research efforts have done for other diseases. Let’s raise money to fund research NOW for pancreatic cancer and not let another person lose someone they love.[/notice]
If you would like to donate to this very worthwhile cause, and help Bobbi to reach her goal of $1 million dollars, please click here. As of writing, she has raised over $26,000 dollars.

For those interested, Bobbi’s last appearance in wrestling was when she worked for Italy’s NU Wrestling Evolution as a valet. She was controversially released from the WWE in April 2004 after suffering a neck injury whilst training in OVW with Ivory and Jacqueline. In July 2004, she underwent level two neck fusion surgery with Dr. Lloyd Youngblood, who has treated the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Edge and Lita in the past. In late 2009, she was signed for Wrestlicious but never made an appearance on the show.
