Welcome to My Personal Page

I lost the love of my life, Eddie Hamner, to pancreatic cancer in January of 2018. I can’t believe he’s been gone 5 years. My thanks to everyone that has joined me in donating and/or walked with Hamner's Superheroes from 2018-2022 at Purple Stride in San Antonio. 

I'm happy to report that Purple Stride San Antonio 2023 will be held on Saturday,  April 29, 2023. The San Antonio 2023 PanCAN event will be held along with 58 other PanCAN events across the county - all on the same day!  I will walk in honor of Eddie and I hope some of you can join me. 

Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer related deaths in the US and has the lowest 5 year survival rate of all major cancers, at just 12%. There is currently no early detection method for this cancer so when it strikes - it's sudden and swift. 

I've stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer so others won't experience the pain that Eddie suffered and the heartache that our family has endured.

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 increase the pancreatic cancer survival rate. 

I know this has been another very difficult year for everyone.  If donating or participating is not an option for you this year that's completely understandable.  I would be grateful if you could just take a few minutes to visit my personal page and Hamner's Superheroes for a brief remembrance of Eddie and all those that are fighting this terrible disease.

MANY, MANY thanks to you all.  Janet
