Jarrett's Purple Stride Page!


Thank you for taking the time to visit my page for Purple Stride! As some of you know, my aunt Lynn has been fighting pancreatic cancer for several years. The strength she shows day in and day out, refusing to giving in to such a crippling disease, is truly inspiring. Throughout all of the treatmeants and tough days, she has perservered as the rock of our family and remained the best aunt, mother, grandmother, wife, and sister than any of us could ever ask for. 

It is because of wonderful organizations such as the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network that survivors like my aunt Lynn are able to continue their fight and serve as a guiding light for those of us who love them so dearly. 

Purple Stride is an event that my family started participating in last year and plan to continue participating in for years to come to show our support for those fighting pancreatic cancer and the organizations that help them. We will be walking again this year in Saint Louis, but I encourage all of you to join Purple Stride as offered in your local communities.

Thank you again for all of your love and support,



Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. 

I’ve stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help me rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating today, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020. 

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join me in the fight today.
