Welcome to My Personal Page

Dear Family and Friends;

As you all know, I lost the love of my life to Pancreatic Cancer who fought for two and half years with dignity. The one who I thought I would grow old with, spoil our grandkid(s) together with, and go on vacations with when we both retire. But that all that changed when the cancer took him away from me and from my kids too early. Our first grandchild, Noemi will never meet the wonderful man he is, and who she would have been honored to call Grandpa. Going on trips without him by my side will not be the same, there will be forever a hole in my heart.

I will continue to fight this cancer in honor of Dante to keep his legacy going. This will be our 6th year that my kids and I are joining Wage of Hope PurpleStride, along side with families and friends on April 30, 2022. We are dedicating this walk to Dante and to all those fighting this deadly cancer or who have lost the battle. Please join my team or start a new team in honor of those whose fighting or will be fighting.

My personal goal is to raise as much as I can to find cure. I am asking for your support. Because pancreatic cancer patients deserve better treatments and outcomes. The three facts that cannot be ignored (1) Is the 3rd leading cancer death in the U.S. (2) No early detection and (3) Few effective treatment options.

Your tax-deductible contribution will help science research find a way to end this cancer, help patients and family who are dealing with this cancer, and help train volunteers.

Your donation will go towards:
* Giving free one on one support facing pancreatic cancer
* Supporting a local volunteer affiliate's ability to fight cancer today
* Training volunteer advocates to speak up for research funding on Capitol Hill
* Connecting a promising young scientist with senior scientists to pave the way for finding breakthrough treatments

By making a donation, you are supporting efforts to fight the good fight to you end pancreatic cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 60,430 people will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year, and that over 48,220 people will die from it. I urge you to stand up to fight to find a cure. Let's not let cancer win.

Thank you for supporting to end pancreatic cancer.
