    Wage Hope at PurpleStride. The walk to end pancreatic cancer.

Welcome to My Personal Page

In 2018 our world was turned upside down.   Barry was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and life was forever changed.  Tumor testing revealed that Barry has the BRCA 2 mutation, a mutation found in 1 of 40 people of Ashkenazi descent .   The mutation increases the chance of developing pancreatic cancer...we did not even know that men could have the BRCA mutation.  Our children, grandchildren, and extended family are now being tested and many are finding they have the mutation!  Barry's success in this fight is due to the new treatment options discovered during research! 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. 

I’ve stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. 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 by 2020. 

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