Welcome to Stephanie's PurpleStride Page
My mom was a wonderful person who never met a stranger! Mom was the caregiver for my grandmother who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2002 and lost her battle a very short 2 1/2 months later. So when my mom was diagnosed in 2011, she knew the battle that we were about to face. Mom decided from the very beginning that she did not want to know what stage she was because she did not want the "number" to impact her fight. Unfortunately by the time of diagnosis, mom's pancreatic cancer had spread and the eventual complications are what made her fight tougher. Mom lost her battle exactly 10 years and 1 week after my grandmother on Easter weekend 2012 after a 7 month battle at the age of 57! I am thankful to be a part of the Charlotte Affiliate and for all the amazing people I have met as we #WageHope together against Pancreatic Cancer!
