Welcome to My Personal Page

Steve died on March 27, Easter Sunday, 2016, just three months after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  I miss him every day. The five year survival rate is just 10%...one of the lowest of all cancers. Since Steve died, two other friends have suffered with and died from this awful disease.  We need to find an early detection method and more effective treatments to raise the survival rate and give people a fighting chance, and we can only do this by providing researchers with the funds they need to get the job done.  Join Team Papa Z or make a donation to help us fight this deadly cancer...Let's WAGE HOPE together!
