Welcome Everyone to My PURPLE Page!

Family, friends and loved ones,

This year will be my 10th year participating in PurpleStride. I've supported this organization since 2011, when my mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This organization has helped get me through the most difficult time in my life while I was a caregiver for my mother. PanCAN helped me make sense of everything that happened throughout my mother's battle. I marched on the Capital Hill steps with PanCAN in 2015 to help advocate for more government funding for research for not only pancreatic cancer, but deadly cancers like prostate cancer as well which I've also lost a loved one to. 

I stride to RAISE awareness. I stride to support others that have endured the pain and loss that disease causes. I stride to RISE above. I stride to FIGHT, and beat cancer down. 

I hope you can join me on this stride to finding a cure. 

Sending you & yours so much love, 


"Life is too short. Enjoy yourself."

-Maria Guadalupe "Lupe" Rin
