Team Forever in our hearts

My mom was a beautiful soul that truly judged no one and loved unconditionally. She had such a deep love of owls and making macrame wall hanging. My mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in April of 2019. She was able to have the Whipple procedure and undergo chemo however she would have a second battle to fight, as soon after she was diagnosed with colon cancer (a second primary cancer). My mom fought so incredibly hard and in April of 2020 after fighting arduously for 375 she lost her battle with pancreatic cancer. 

My college sponsor, Mr. Posey was an amazing man and philanthropist. It is because of him that I had the opportunity to have a full ride to an elite private college. It is because of him that I am able to have a career doing something that I love. 

Two of the most significant people in my life both courageously lost their battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 73. They are both the reason why I fight for more awareness of this awful disease. My goal is to give support and a voice to those that are fighting through this disease. 

Pan Can does a great job advocating for and supporting patients and their families.

I am asking you to educate others of this cancer:
