PurpleStride Celebrates 15th Anniversary in 2022! We are back at Soldier Field!

PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer, is back in person April 30, 2022, at Soldier Field!

Many of you know that I have been fundraising for PanCAN since 2014 when my brother, Curt, Coach E from Mt. Carmel High School, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It was a gut punch since my mom died from this same disease more than 30 years earlier.

In 2022, more than 60,000 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. That is 166 people diagnosed every single day. Pancreatic cancer is the 11th most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S. and the 3rd deadliest cancer.

Your support today helps fund the research needed to find early detection methods, to develop targeted therapies and targeted clinical trialfor patients that will give those diagnosed a chance

Please help me continue to fund the fight against pancreatic cancer. Any amount you can spare is a gift. 

Please, click "DONATE TO JANE" to make a donation.  If you'd also like to help fundraise, I invite you to click "JOIN THIS TEAM" to create your own fundraising page as a team member of CARA Friends. And, if you raise a minimum of $50 to your own page, you will receive a PurpleStride 2022 t-shirt.

I am so grateful!
