Welcome to My Personal Page

Pancreas cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers and is woefully underfunded by the National Cancer Institute. I have been an oncology nurse for 25 years. I help pancreas cancer patients and I feel privileged to do so. In 2016 my beautiful sister, Tammy lost her life to pancreas cancer. She was a veteran and was also a nurse who worked in a Veteran's Hospital taking care of our nations military personnel. Pancreas cancer continues to affect good people, it has no prejudice. It is a devastating disease that has not made big strides in finding a cure, I believe, due to lack of funding and the difficulty in treating this aggressive disease. This year, I am the Co-affliate chair for PanCan as I believe in their mission and the powerful, important work they do to help patients and their families.

I am asking for your financial support for this great organization. Please donate from the generosity of your heart and the gratefulness you feel to be alive on our beautiful planet, despite all the current world events. We are truly blessed to be alive and well.  I will always continue to raise money for this disease, because of my sister, because of my patients and because this is a great organization that is so helpful for patients and their families. Please help me Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. You know me, please donate. Last year I raised over 10,000.00! This year would love to go way over that!

Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. 

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. It takes money to find a cure. Please join me in the fight today. Sending love to you and yours!
