Joy Heines

Welcome to My Personal Page

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

This year has been very difficult for me to gain donations with the restrictions from the pandemic. My personal fundraising efforts have been greatly impacted. We could not have Bowling for Joy's Believers and those fun things to gain momentum. 

I feel very blessed to be a 16 year survivor and I believe that great strides are being made in the fight against this deadly cancer, but with a 10% survival rate there is still a lot to be done. 

Please donate or join team "Joy's Believers" and help me raise $10,000. We need to reach our goal by October 4th! 

This is so important and I hope that you will join my team, or make a donation.

I look forward to seeing everyone at our virtual PurpleStride Louisville on October 4th. 

Thanks for your support,
