My Personal Page

I'm raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in Purplestride Madison 2020.  This is a great organization dedicated to the fight against Pancreatic Cancer..

I walk to Honor my beautiful mother, Christine,  a warrior who survived this disease for a decade.  We sadly lost her in October 2018.

In memory of my mom and all others and their families who stand up or stood up to this disease, I am reactivating my team, Jersey Girls Don't Pump Gas for the annual PurpleStride Walk to End Pancreatic Cancer.   Please join me on Saturday morning, May 2, 2020 for a beautiful walk in Madison, Wisconsin to raise awareness.   My mother stubbornly fought this disease as fiercely  as she has fought  the idea of pumping her own gas, despite living in Florida for 15 years.  ( New Jersey is only state where you can't pump your own gas). Mom will always be our Jersey Girl.   Any donations are greatly appreciated as more funding needs to go to researching this awful disease.   Thank you for your consideration!
