Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!


It's been more than three and a half years since I first felt the abdominal pain that turned out to be pancreatic cancer. And what a journey it has been! Chemo, surgeries, procedures, hospitalizations, radiation, infections, chemo and more chemo! But also: travel, walks and swims, cozy times around the fire, good meals, dancing and singing, laughing with friends and family. I'm so grateful for the support of my family and friends, and I am also grateful for the support of PanCAN, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. I've contacted PanCAN's Patient Central several times to ask about clinical trials or a treatment. I've attended a few of PanCAN's very informative webinars about the latest research or treatments. I've learned a lot from the articles they email to me. And I've advocated for more funding in Congress for pancreatic cancer, because of PanCAN's legislative alerts. 

So let's do this: Let's raise money for this awesome organization.

On April 30, I'll be walking in PanCAN's PurpleStride, to raise funds for life changing programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. Since I'll be in the Bay Area for a new type of treatment at that time, I'll be walking with my team in the San Francisco PurpleStride, while Ned will head up his own team walking in Boston on the same day. Both teams will be called "Wendy's Wings". (Please email me at wgulley@gmail.com if you want to walk with our teams in either location. The San Francisco walk is actually at Lake Merritt in Oakland.)

Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN's free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives.

Please make a gift of any size and thanks so much for your support!
