Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

I am raising awareness in honor of my mom, Vicki Govaars, the heart and center of many of our lives who we lost February 4, 2019 to Pancreatic Cancer.

This year, my family is participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride walk on February 4th, a year-round national movement that funds life changing programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families - including ours when we were just beginning to navigate the overwhelming task of processing my mom's diagnosis and researching treatments.

You can support by donating, or join my team as a participant in the virtual walk from wherever you are! We'd love for you to wear purple with us and join by doing a commemorative activity of choice such as walking/running/biking/swimming/etc on the day of the event.

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. 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.
