    My sisters and I, honoring our mom Ann A. Director, who lost her life to pancreatic cancer at age 74 in 2006.

Welcome to My Personal Page


Dear family and friends,
I'm raising money to support Pancreatic Cancer Action network (PANCAN) by participating in the Philadelphia Purple Stride Walk on April 30, 2022.

As many of you know, pancreatic cancer has affected 3 generations of my family -- my grandmother, who died of pancreatic cancer at age 88, my mom, who died 10 months after she was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer at age 74, and me.

I am a 13-year pancreatic cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with pre-pancreatic cancer at age 52 in 2009. Through a clinical study at Penn Medicine, tests revealed the disease at the earliest stage. I had a large part of my pancreas removed through surgery at Penn, and I have been cancer free for 13 years.

I walk for PANCAN to help raise funds for early detection, more research, and greater awareness about this devastating disease. Pancreatic cancer has only a 11% survival rate and is now the 3rd leading cause of cancer related death in the U.S.

We need to double the survival rate for pancreatic cancer this year or it will become the 2nd deadliest cancer in our country.

Here is some info about the walk:

It means everything to me.
