Please help me reach my goal

In 2018 I had some mild pain deep inside my stomach.  A visit to the doctor and a biopsy told the story.  I was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and life was forever changed.  Tumor testing found I have the BRCA 2 mutation which increased my chances of developing pancreatic cancer, as well as other cancers.  The treatments were difficult but I was lucky, my body responded well.  My continued success in this fight is due to the new treatment options discovered during research!  In the fall of 2021 I became patient 1 of a phase 1 study, doing my part to help others fight this awful disease!   Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers.  This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination.   

Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?  Will you join me on April 30, 2022 as I walk with my family and friends?

Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. 

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
