Raised: $925

Goal: $8,000

Welcome to My Personal Page

We are back for our 5th year in a row!  We are so proud to have raised ~ $13,000 each year for Pancan and know we can increase it this year.  We are proud to support the PanCan network.  They help families navigate the clinical trial process, in addition to providing grants for research.  The Purple Stride is PanCan's main source of funding, so our efforts here matter.  

I lost my mom to pancreatic cancer in 2016. Like so many, she was much too young and gone too quickly.  Thinking on this year I cannot imagine being a family going through this during a pandemic.  Not being able to visit loved ones in the hospital or sit with them during chemo.  My heart is with them, and I am happy to support organizations like Pancan that help families navigate such a stressful time in life.  

Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd most deadly cancer. This terrible disease is so devastating to those diagnosed and their families because of the low survival rates; the 5 year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is just 10%.   There is no method for early detection, by the time most patients see a doctor for their symptoms the cancer is already advanced.   Our goal in fundraising is to increase awareness and funding for research to make strides against this disease.

 We appreciate the support. 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.

We hope you can join our team!
