Raised: $15,812

Goal: $16,000

Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

As a 22-year survivor, I am proud that Team Quon has participated in PurpleStride for over 14 years and raised over $400,000 for this important cause. We hope to raise at least $30,000 this year.

I’m going to help make progress, with your support.

This year is significant to me. I just finished a very harrowing 37 days (!) in the hospital for a successful pancreatic cancer surgery, but with multiple complications. I had many tough weeks of recovery at home and still more to go to feel "normal" again. Husband Joel was my heroic nurse and caregiver for the entire journey. 

I hope I am strong enough to participate on April 27 in PanCAN’s nation-wide PurpleStride to raise funds for life-changing programs and services benefitting pancreatic cancer patients and their families. 

Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service, and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

Please make a gift of any size to get me one step closer to my fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 

Thank you for your support.
