Welcome to Terri's Purple Stride Page

I was diagnosed 15 months ago and I get mostof my treatments in Iowa City. Unlike regular pancreatic cancer the kind I haveis Neuroendocrine Pancreatic and is treatable but not curable. Mytreatment has includes a monthly shot that helps control my symptoms and chemo.  The first chemo was not successful and thesecond one has had mixed results. Since they cannot reduce the tumor and itwrapped around the artery to my liver, I am not surgical. So I am now waitingfor the FDA to approve PRRT treatment Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy whichis a form of molecular targeted therapy.   

I'm raising money in support of the PancreaticCancer Action Network by participating in PurpleStride. I have used thePancreatic Cancer Action Network to get information about my cancer and toconnect with others that have lived with my rare form of cancer.  By making a donation to me, you are supportingefforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020. Please make adonation today or join my team Terri’s NET and help me to reach my fundraisinggoal.
