Welcome to My purple stride page

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. 

My grandmother died of pancreatic cancer 11 years ago.  My mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September 2019 and we are grateful for the amazing team at the INOVA Schar Cancer Institute, including Dr. Canon and Dr. Piper, who guided us through three rounds of chemo (FOLFIRINOX), surgery (Whipple procedure), and six more rounds of chemo (GEMZAR & XELODA).  We are so incredibly happy and grateful that her treatment plan was successful and she is now cancer free!

Knowing how rare it is to hear such a success story when it comes to a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, I’ve stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help me rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

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

Please join me in the fight today.
