Welcome to Gayle Lettenmaier's PurpleStride Page

I'm raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in PanCAN PurpleStride Colorado 2022.

Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!

Why I PanCAN PurpleStride:  In May 2012 my Dad was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic pancreatic cancer.  Just putting "pancreatic" in front of the word "cancer" means death sentence in my mind because my husband and I had already lost his aunt to what turned out to be pancreatic cancer.  Dad fought it like a champion and he survived until July 2014.  During Dad's battle I searched for more information and more options and that's when I found the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN).  I called them and the sweetest most caring person on earth talked me though a lot of the details and then shipped me a lot of information on pancreatic cancer, caring for a pancreatic cancer patient, and clinical trials.  Although Dad ultimately did not choose to participate in a clinical trial the information from Pancreatic Cancer Action Network was invaluable to my family.

Reminder to my Visa employee friends: Visa employees please remember to request your company match through Benevity through Insite. Visa matches every Visa employee donation dollar for dollar. Contact me if you have questions.
