Welcome to My Personal Page

Hard to believe that Ed has been gone 4 1/2 years.

In keeping with the promise I made, I am again "Walking for Pancreatic Cancer Research" and hoping you can help me to raise funds to help combat this deadly cancer.

You all know Ed's story and his battle. I want to keep his memory alive and do something good on his behalf.  By participating in the Purple Stride Walk I am hoping to continue Ed’s goal of bringing awareness of this deadly disease. If you can help financially by donating or by prayers for a cure, I would be so grateful.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 10%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. 

Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.  Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join me in the fight today.  

Ed loved hiking in the PNW, it was his dream when we moved here. Let's take a HIKE in Ed's memory!

Thank you so much,
