Welcome to My Personal Page

As a 6 1/2 year SURVIVOR of pancreatic cancer & team captain of Survivor Strong, I continue to support the fight against Pancreatic Cancer with my 6th year of participation in PurpleStride.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers at just 11%. This deadly disease has stolen way too many, but it can't take away our determination.

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

Will you help me to rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today? Together we can Wage Hope that all pancreatic cancer patients are Survivor Strong!

About PanCAN's PurpleStride

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s (PanCAN) PurpleStride is a year-round national movement that funds life-changing programs and services to accelerate progress for pancreatic cancer patients.

On one powerful day through nearly 60 PurpleStride events nationwide, pancreatic cancer survivors, families, caregivers, researchers and supporters will join together to honor everyone affected by the disease.

PurpleStride is the number-one way PanCAN raises money to fight pancreatic cancer on all fronts — through research, clinical initiatives, patient services, advocacy and nationwide volunteer support. Learn more.
