Welcome to my page honoring my Mom

It will be 7 years this coming February That my family and I have lost my Mom to this awful cancer.

She was a fighter but short of a miracle and a prayer we didn't have much chance. This cancer will come out of no where and by the time it is diagnosed it is too late. She deserved better than that. All persons diagnosed with Pancreatic deserve better than a 9 % survival rate. 

We must continue to raise funds and awareness to fight this deadly cancer.

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?

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