Welcome to Rosemary's PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

My dad was my best friend.  He taught me how to catch a baseball, took my sister and me fishing, rode waves with us in the ocean, and played all sorts of games with us.  My dad died of pancreatic cancer in 2008 after a six and a half month battle.  I was ten years old, and my sister was eight.  My mom, sister, and I have been fundraising for thirteen years in hopes of eventually finding a cure to this horrible disease.  Please consider donating to continue the fight.  No amount is too small!
