Welcome to My Personal Page

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. 

Pancreatic Cancer took my hero away from me to soon. My grandfather was a man like no other. The way he could make you laugh until you cried, the stories he would tell you (although you never knew if they were true or not) the gentlemen he was to everyone he interacted with. He was the type of man you wanted to grow up to be or the type of man you wanted to marry one day. 

I’ve stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer in memory of my late grandfather Herb Kauffman. Not a day goes by that I don't think about the time we had together. It is in his honor that I will walk at the PurpleStride. Will you help me rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

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. By donating today, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival. 

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join me in the fight today.
