Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network played a pivotal role in my becoming a 9 year survivor of Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer. Through their Clinical Trial finder service, they helped me find the clinical trial that matched my diagnosis and genetics. I have become a volunteer in the NJ affiliate as the Outreach Chair to educate the public about pancreatic cancer, mentor patients and their caregivers, and serve as a PanCan advocate every year requesting Congress increase federal funding for pancreatic cancer research and treatment. I am fundraising to support the Early Detection Initiative for developing diagnostic tests to diagnose this cancer as early as possible, leading to better patient outcomes, and to support the programs and services of PanCan Patient Central. Your support is greatly appreciated.
