Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

I’m going to help make progress, with your support.

As many of you know, I lost both my father and aunt to pancreatic cancer. About 5 to 10 percent of pancreatic cancers are hereditary. This means that for every 20 people with pancreatic cancer, one or two likely have an inherited mutation that increased their risk for developing the disease. Many of you know I don't sit on things too long without action so I joined PanCAN (Pancreatic Cancer Action Network) as a board member five years ago to help drive resources, strategic insight and my industry insights to help PanCAN Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer.

I’m participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a national movement that funds life changing programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

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 to get me one step closer to my fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
