Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Hello family and friends,

Welcome to my page. As most of you know, I lost my father, Wesley P Watson Sr to pancreatic cancer on January 4, 2016. Life as I knew it was changed forever. He was diagnosed in October of 2015 and God claimed his angel a few months later. When my family first received the news, it was like everything slowed down and the doctor started to sound like the teacher from those Charlie Brown cartoons I watched as a child. For the next few weeks as we tried to digest that information it felt like I was a zombie.

When my father finally succumbed to this disease I had a pressing need to find a way to channel my grief and to continue celebrating his life. I went online and found PurpleStride.

My father wasn't a man of many words, but he LOVED his family and encouraged us to come together, often. So, what better way to celebrate his life, than to support an organization whose goal is to bring about more awareness to his disease and works tirelessly to raise money for research to find a cure?

Patients and families need us now more that ever.

Thank you for your support!
