Welcome to the Personal Page in Honor of Bob Kappel and Donna Coffey

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 10%. I lost my amazing father and Michelle lost her remarkable aunt to this brutal disease.

You may not know, but I have spent the past 7 years volunteering as the Logistics Chair for Minnesota's PurpleRide Stride event. The PurpleRide Stride event traditionally brings 3,000 cyclists, runners, and walkers in an effort to raise month towards ending pancreatic cancer.

I've never asked for donations, as I've let my time investment soothe my heart. This year's event will take place virtually on September 12th, so now I'm asking for your support (and your donation). Will you help me rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients.

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