Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

On February 3rd, 2020 I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic pancreatic cancer. One doctor at the hospital told me to get my affairs in order, because I only had 3 to 6 months at best. This doctor clearly didn't know me at all, or he would have known that I don’t give up that easily. Here we are 4 years later and still fighting the fight as a family. We are continuing to create wonderful memories. There are ups and downs, as expected, but I take every good day as an opportunity to live my life to the fullest and continue to defy the odds.

Please join us on April 27, 2024 in Las Vegas to walk a mile or run 5K to help us fight for people like myself, my friends Larry Kizzar and Bill Hart, my nephew Jay Orndorff who lost their battle and for the many others diagnosed with this terrible disease. If you cannot join us, please make a donation at this page to help us reach our goal. We hope to see some of you there, wearing your purple, but we thank everyone for all of your support for the past four years.

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

I’m going to help make progress, with your support.

I’m participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

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.
