In Memory of Maria "Carmelita" -MOM

"Life took a big shift in October 2018, symptoms were there, Dr's were not aware and finally after three surgeries - the words were given, "You have Pancreatic Cancer".  At that time I was given 3-6 months, and here I am over a year later fighting PC. The journey has been tough, but I refuse to not put up a fight."   

Sadly, Mom gained her wings October 03,2020. SHE FOUGHT HARD. She was determined to beat this cancer, and at some point she realized if she couldn't beat it, she will raise awareness. 

 Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 10%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. 

Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients.

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join me in the fight today.  Together we can make a change.
