Let's Keep Raising Money for Pancreatic Cancer Research

Our journey started March 3rd, 2018 when I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  

If you can join our team, please do - we would love to have you! Not sure if we will be walking this year, but we do want to raise awareness again and raise funds to change the survival rate - it remains too low.

When I was diagnosed in 2018, it was at 5% survival rate within 5 years of diagnosis. On March 3rd 2024 I will reach my 6 year diagnosis. As of January 2024, 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:

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

Let Him be the light within you and let Him shine bright.
