Welcome to Team Leslie

Compassion. Dignity. Grace. Courage. The list of words to describe Leslie Kay Kissel could go on and on. She wasn't "just" a mother or a wife or a sister. She was a role model, an inspiration, a woman whose laughter was infectious. She never shied away from any challenge and her diagnosis was no exception. She fought until the very end, proof that sometimes hard work, prayer, and resilience aren't quite enough when facing this disease.

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.
