Welcome to Gerry Maryas Personal Page

Dear Family and Friends, 

Our team, "Gerry's Family and Friends", is proud to be participating in the  PurpleStride St. Louis for the 13th year. 

The St. Louis Purple Stride Walk is scheduled for 8AM, Saturday, April 27, 2024, at the Chesterfield Amphtheater. PanCan will be hosting PurpleStride walks in over sixty cities. Pancreatic cancer continues to affect thousands of patients and families every day. It is important that we continue our mission to wage hope and support efforts to raise critical resources to battle the world's toughest cancer.

We began our walk in 2011 when Gerry's sister Marge was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. In 2013 Gerry was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, and underwent Whipple Surgery, followed by chemo and radiation.

Our team is raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in hopes of changing the course of this devastating disease. Your donations give new hope and more time to current patients, advance research, increase survival rates, and educate the world about the importance of early detection. The five year survival rate for patients with pancreatic cancer has risen to 12%. Over the past decade, the five-year survival rate has gone from 6% to 12%! Let's continue to work together to achieve Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's goal of reaching a five-year survival rate of 20% by 2030. We are making a difference, but there's more work to be done. Together we will get there!

Please make a donation today, and help us reach our fundraising goal! Thank you very much for your participation!
