Join Me in the fight against pancreatic cancer

Our family knew nothing about pancreatic cancer until my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. We were told there was no cure and her survival rate was low--she likely had 6-9 months. The next 9 months of her life were horrible and it was so hard to see the mother I always looked to as being so strong deteriorate and depend completely on others. Losing her has been the hardest thing I have ever faced, yet it is a privilege to carry on her legacy every day. 

Each year I hope to be part of finding better treatments and detection methods for this disease through fundraising and advocacy efforts. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers--the five year survival rate is just 10%. 

I’ve stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help me rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join me in the fight today.
