Welcome to Michelle's Flip the Bird to Pancreatic Cancer Page

I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer on August 17,1995. I was 13, my brothers were 11 and 5. This will be our team's 7th year participating in PurpleStride and our team will be walking in memory of our dad.  We will also be walking in memory of the following people that have been diagnosed and lost the battle of this deadly disease, our friend and neighbor Tony Morales, friend, Doug Heilmann, friend,Deb Morgan, and friend, Jessica Rodriguez.  We are also walking in Honor of our friend Vicki Zuniga who was diagnosed this year. 

Pancreatic Cancer still has one of the lowest survival rates of all the cancers due to there not being an early detection screening method.  When our father was diagnosed it was stage 4 and we were told he had less than 30 days to live; through treatment he was able to sustain almost 6 months.  20 years later the disease has made some strides but we still hear too many stories that this cancer was not caught in time.  We need to demand better for patients for survival.    

By making a donation to our Team, you are supporting these efforts to help double survival for this deadly disease by 2020.  Come out and be part of the 10th Anniversary of Purplestride and 7th year of Team Flip the Bird!  

Love the Hernandez Family
