in memory of Captain Carmel, my brother, my hero. Live to Fish!

Friends, in 2015 I lost my brother to pancreatic cancer.  Carmel fought a heroic 11 month battle that included 23 rounds of chemotherapy, and faced his diagnosis with an open heart and undaunting courage.  Carmel was proud that family and friends came together and in 2014 raised more money for Pancreatic Cancer than any other team in Maryland.  Every year we have been in the top five fundraising teams.  This year, we continue in honor of Carmel, and in honor of all those suffering from or lost to this disease.  

Although one of the deadliest cancers pancreatic cancer continues to be among the least funded.  Thanks to your support over these past seven years, survival rates for pancreatic cancer have increased by five percentage points and is now 11 percent.  With your support we can continue this trend. To that end, I'm raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in PurpleStride.  And I'm asking you to join me.  By making a donation to me, you can save lives! 

Please make a donation today -- for Carmel, and for all those touched by this disease.
