Welcome to My Personal Page

My story, I am an 8 year Pancreatic Cancer survivor! 

April 30, 2022 PurpleStride Phoenix will join Purplestride walks across the nation for the first time.  I walk to celebrate my survival, to honor the friends I have made,  including those who have lost their battle, and to remember those who lost loved ones to pancreatic cancer.  

I continue to walk to raise money to support research, and help provide free information and resources for patients and familes.   I care about those who have suffered a loss. Especially the grandchildren who lost a grandparent, a child or adult losing a parent. 

2022 is the 11th anniversary of this event in Phoenix.  It will be my 7th year participating. I am walking because I can say "I had Pancreatic Cancer."

November 22, 2022 will be nine years since my surgery and treatment.  Treatments have changed, there are more options, they are making progress on screening tests and the result is the five year survival in 2013 was 6%, this week the American Cancer Society announced the five year survival is 11%.  

I have been given a chance to live my life and I remember it is a gift every day.  Every small thing we do counts. I honor those who have lost the battle by walking in PurpleStride Phoenix April 30, 2022.
