Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we! Join the “Ack Attacks” as part of our team. Some of us will be participating in the Purple Stride 5K run in Sacramento on April 30. You don’t need to do the run to be on our team and there is no cost to join. Your support is important to us.  

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 organization is near to my heart.  My husband of 29 years lost his battle with pancreatic cancer after just 14 months from his diagnosis.  Four years prior to his death I lost my dear mother to pancreatic cancer. Both were taken far too soon and left behind many loved ones and friends.  

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. In honor of their memory I would like to help other families  that are starting their journey with this disease. One day the prognosis for people suffering with pancreatic cancer will improve.  

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
