In 1989, Todd Horne lost his mother to the disease. Then in 2015, Todd was diagnosed with stage II pancreatic cancer.

We stride to make sure that other people have a chance, because a five year survival rate of 9 percent is unacceptable and because it's what "Papa Z" would have done.

There's a number of other terms I could use to describe myself and our pancreatic cancer journey. But these are primary, and this is the reason I'm sharing my story. Our story.

In a world filled with many differences, an event like PurpleStride breaks down the differences and creates a strong bond for a cause.
