    2019 Purple Stride


I'm raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PANCAN) by participating in the 2020 PurpleStride-Houston. 

My life was forever altered in early February 2012 when I was forced to confront one of the most difficult cancer diagnosis:  pancreatic cancer.  The odds of survival of this disease are very low.  In most cases, the disease has spread to other organs by the time it is discovered.  Mine had not.  My tumor could be treated with infused chemotherapy, oral chemotherapy with radiation, and the very onerous Whipple surgery followed by more infused chemo.  After being cancer free for 7 years, in  August 2019 I was rediagnosed with pan can (but a not metastatis).  I am back in the fight and feel confident that I will once again be cancer free when this treatment is over.  PANCAN is rewriting the book on how to fight this deadly disease.  By making a donation to me, you are supporting efforts to continue increasing the survival ratel for pancreatic cancer, which have increased from 5% in 2012 to 10% in 2020.

Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!  WAGE HOPE!!
