    PanCAN Walk 2019

Catherine Erickson


Raised: $498

Goal: $2,020

Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop me or slow down, and somehow I have squeaked out 44 months of survival!  As many of you know, I am hoping to prolong my life through treatment and have not given up hope.

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. This year's annual walk is virtual and we are doing it on 9/19 rather than 9/12 as Maggie gets married on the 12th!

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. I have accessed these resources over and over again to help navigate my journey and access the best care and treatment.

Please make a gift of any size to get me one step closer to my fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives.   I am hoping for some $44 or $444 donations even to celebrate my 44 months of survival!  I want to continue to benefit from PanCAN's role, especially in patient education, advocacy and treatment research.    I want other patients and families to benefit from PanCAN as well.

Thank you for your support.
