Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

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

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

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

It's been almost 3 years since I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. During the last two years PanCan had been a huge support and resource for me.  With research, I am hopeful for the advancement in the early detection of this disease to improve patient outcomes beyond the 11%.
This is my second PurpleStride walk and I plan to participate every year.
This year, I've registered in Phoenix and Michigan. I will be visiting in Michigan that day and plan to walk with all my warriors in Detroit. Next year I will walk in Phoenix! But no matter where you live, I hope you will join my team!

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.
