Goal: $15,000

Welcome to my page!

My name is Maya Joffe. In May of 2019 I lost my Great Aunt Rosalie to pancreatic cancer. After she passed this inspired me to do my mitzvah project on raising awareness for pancreatic cancer. That year my mom helped me find Purple Stride and I raised about 4.5k my first year. Last year, with the help of a friend, we about doubled the amount I raised my first year. This year my goal is $15,000 which is a big leap from last year but with your help I know I can do it. I continue to do this project each year as I didn’t get a lot of time with my Aunt Rosalie. I saw her a bunch when I was little and the last time I had seen her I was 9 or 10. This project is a way for me to make sure we don’t forget how cancer can take someone we love away from us and help them still live on in our hearts. With the money I raise for the PurpleStride walk it will help fund research for a cure for pancreatic cancer. 

No donation is too small! Even if you can only donate a dollar that still helps fund the research! If you can’t donate please do me the favor of sharing the link to my page and to help spread the message! Anything helps!
