Chip Off the 'Ole Block

We stride for Chip - father, husband, brother, uncle, and friend to many. His infectious smile and unmatched humor left their marks on anyone who knew him. In 2015, we were met with the unthinkable when he, my dad, was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. With what little time we had, we reflected on the beautiful life he lived, made new memories, and spent cherished moments together as a family. He passed peacefully only 2 months after his diagnosis. We are left with a significant Chip on our shoulder (pun intended, he'd love that) as we move through life without him, but his heart and warmth still live on. After some time and healing, we are ready to take steps to end pancreatic cancer.

We're going to help make progress, with your support.

I'm participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

Please make a gift of any size to get me one step closer to my fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
