Welcome to My Personal Page

In 2006, my Mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Although she fought hard, it eventually took her life. The statistics have improved very slightly (from 5% to 9%); however, Pancreatic cancer still has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers. 

My family has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleRide, the bike ride to end pancreatic cancer. And although the official ride is a virtual one this year, my family will be gathering to do our part together. Will you help us with a donation?

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. Please join me in the fight today.

At nearly 60 PurpleStride events in communities nationwide, pancreatic cancer survivors, families, caregivers, researchers and supporters passionate about changing the future of pancreatic cancer come together to celebrate and honor everyone affected by the disease.

PurpleStride is the number-one way PanCAN raises money to fight pancreatic cancer on all fronts — through research, clinical initiatives, patient services, advocacy and nationwide volunteer support. Learn more.
