Welcome to My Personal Page

Dear Friends and Family,

As many of you know, I lost the love of my life, Dante, to pancreatic cancer after a courageous battle lasting two and a half years. Dante was not just my partner; he was my rock, my confidant, and the person I envisioned growing old with, spoiling our grandchildren together, and exploring the world with in our retirement. Losing him has left an irreparable void in my heart. Our beautiful granddaughters, Noemi and Kina, will never have the chance to experience the warmth and love of the incredible man Dante was, whom they would have cherished as their Grandpa.

In honor of Dante’s memory and the countless others affected by pancreatic cancer, my children and I are once again participating in the Wage of Hope PurpleStride walk on April 27, 2024. This year marks our 8th year of walking alongside families and friends, dedicating each step to those fighting this relentless disease or who have tragically lost their battle.

I invite you to join our team or start your own in honor of loved ones who are fighting or will face this battle in the future. Together, we can make a difference and support vital research to find a cure. My personal goal is to raise as much as possible to contribute to this cause because pancreatic cancer patients deserve better treatments and outcomes.

Pancreatic cancer presents unique challenges as the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, with no early detection methods and few effective treatment options. Your tax-deductible contribution will directly support scientific research efforts to end this devastating disease, provide essential support to patients and their families, and empower volunteers to advocate for increased research funding.

Your donation will make a tangible impact by:

    •    Providing free one-on-one support for individuals facing pancreatic cancer

    •    Strengthening the capabilities of local volunteer affiliates in the fight against cancer

    •    Training volunteer advocates to champion research funding initiatives on Capitol Hill

Please consider joining us in this important cause by donating what you can. Together, we can honor the memory of Dante and countless others while working towards a future free from the grips of pancreatic cancer.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Anna Marie Deleon
