Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

With your help, we can continue Bruce's brave fight to raise awareness of and raise funds to further the understanding, screenings, treatments, and hopefully, a cure for pancreatic adenocarcinoma.

Team along with the wonderful support of the City of Hazel Park and the Hazel Park School District are participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

Please make a gift of any size to get team to come one step closer to its fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

This is a family friendly event. If you have lost a loved one to cancer, please feel free to wear T-shirts dedicated to your loved one.

Thank you for your support!
