    PurpleStride - Walk to end pancreatic cancer

Raised: $3,121

Goal: $6,500

12% - More than doubled in 5 years...since my diagnosis. Let's keep up the doubling!

Our journey started March 3rd, 2018 when I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. We have all felt the love and support from everyone. I am currently NED (no evidence of disease) and am so thankful for all of you, the prayers (along with many other things during 2018) and to Dr. Trudy + team at Mayo for their expertise. 

If you can join our team, please do (we would love to have you!)! 

If you are unable to walk, but still want to donate, please do. We appreciate every dollar donated to research on this cancer - so we can increase the survival rate. When I was diagnosed in 2018, it was at 5% survival rate within 5 years of diagnosis. On March 3rd I will reach that 5 year diagnosis mark...AND as of January 2023, we are at 12%  - not nearly enough, but HUGE strides due to funds raised in recent years. 

For several reasons, this has been a verse I hold tightly. And on 1/8, Pastor Toby had a sermon on these verses again. I do thank God for each new day and all of you.

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.  Isaiah 60:1
