Raised: $9,050

Goal: $9,000

Purplestride Jacksonville 2022! THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF TEAM MISSING HAPPY DICK! (The year we cross the $250,000 cumulative funds raised!)

There has been so much craziness in the last 2 years.  I am feeling the need to add some positivity to the world.  Fighting cancer in all its forms is important to me, especially Pancreatic Cancer which took my dad too soon. I've lost too have many.  So, I am reaching out and hoping some will contribute to this fight.  Please considering supporting this year!

As many of you know, I lost my father, in a way too short battle, to Pancreatic Cancer in 2008.  Since that time, I have done what I can to raise awareness of and funds for this relentless disease.  So much promising work is being done, and I am so proud, in my own small way, to continue to help the fight in my dad's memory.  I'm raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in PurpleStride.

Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!
