Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and in memory of our dad/pappy/husband/ loved one, my team and I are walking in the annual Purple Stride to raise money to support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. PanCAN funds research, patient support, and more.

    Dad started having issues in January 2019, nausea, stomach pain, back pain, itchy skin.....February he was admitted for testing, scans, and a biopsy that led to his diagnosis. March they attempted a Whipple procedure, they couldn't do it. The cancer was too advanced, a stage 4. By April the cancer had grown around his intestines, making it impossible for him to eat. The Drs said they had never seen it progress that fast...we came home planning to set up Hospice/ palliative care depending on which direction was best. We lost dad the end of April. From the time he was admitted to the hospital for testing, he had 2 months. That's terrifying and it was heartbreaking. We didn't have time to have hope, or plan, or look for 2nd opinions. We didn't have time to find ways to comfort him through the nightmare he was going through.  

If you're interested in walking you can reach out to me for more info! We will be walking November 21st!

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

I’m participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging 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.
