Welcome to My Personal Page


Due to COVID, there's no Purple Ride this year.  But the fight against pancreatic cancer goes on.  Please contribute to my campaign to fight this cruel disease and memorialize my friends,Charley Hillger, Mike Resnick, Dave Goldberg and Gene Kaplan who died of the pancreatic cancer.  It's a cruel and horrible disease, one that deserves to be fought.  

And I'm sure you have the same feeling if this horrible disease has touched your life.  

I'm raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in the 2020 Virtual Purple Ride here in Minneapolis.  This year, there is no organized ride, but I'll be out on my bike anyway on September 12, the day it was originally scheduled.  It doesn't bring back my beloved friends, but it's something, and it works, and it's even fun.  This will be my tenth year on the ride, but the first one by myself.  Even COVID-19 can't stop me fighting pancreatic cancer.

Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal by September 12, the original date of 2020's Purple Ride.
