Help Beat Pancreatic Cancer

This is the only fundraising thing I do on FB, because it is so important to me.  Up until 2019, pancreatic cancer was sort of in the back of my mind as one of the really bad ones.  When the disease took my brother Ralph in March of that year, it got real very fast.  At that time, the 5-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer was 9%.  This year, its 12%--progress, but a long way to go.  Please donate to my team (Ralph's Purple Striders) or if you would like to participate in the PurpleStride event (a gathering and short "stride" of a lot of people touched in one way or another by the disease, Saturday April 29th at Riverwalk Park in West Sacramento, 8:30 to about noon), register and join my team.  Thank you!
