Welcome to My Personal Page

Dear Friends:  

Please join me in the fight against pancreatic cancer.  An estimated 60,430  Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2021.  More than 48,000 people will die of pancreatic cancer in 2021 in the United States. Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Of the major cancers, pancreatic cancer is the deadliest cancer with a 5-year survival rate of a dismal 10%.  When I was diagnosed in December 2013, the survival rate was 6%, so your participation in past years is leading to progress, but we need to do better. As one of the too few survivors, I am asking you to help me make the impossible possible by raising critical research funds for earlier detection, more clinical trials, and better treatment options. Please join Team "Go for Gold" on April 30, 2022 for Purple Stride San Diego and make your virtual donation to team "Go for Gold"!  For this upcoming year, 2022, I have set a team fundraising goal of $5,000.00.  With your help, I am sure we will achieve our goal!

Thank you!  By making a donation to me, you are supporting efforts to improve survival for thousands of Americans who will be diagnosed with this challenging cancer.
