Welcome to my PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Hi to All!

I am Teaming up with my daughter, Michelle Strahl, on April 29, 2023 in Portland, OR for the PanCAN Purple Stride fundraising event to help raise money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients and give them free, personalized one to one support through PanCAN Patient Services.

I have a personal investment in this, having lost my brother, Mark, to pancreatic cancer, and this followed with several other losses from this cancer that included another family member and a dear friend. Maybe you too know about this cancer on a personal level.

More than 64,000 Americans are expected to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2023. That is 175 people diagnosed every day.  Pancreatic cancer is the 10th most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S. It is a difficult cancer to diagnose and is often found in the later stages. Tests to find pancreatic cancer in the earliest stages are urgently needed. My hope is to create opportunity for all patients with pancreatic cancer to thrive.

I want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and I need your help to do that!

The more money that my daughter and I can raise, the bigger the impact we make – and would appreciate a gift of any size to help us get there.

Thank you for your support!
