Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

This year we are participating in PANCAN's Purple Stride event in loving memory of our MOM, Nancy Annecone and for our Pop, Tom Dunn, Sr,  our warrior and 6 year survivor!!


Mom Annecone was diagnosed with Stage 1 Pancreatic Cancer and had a Whipple in January 2019, followed by chemo.  She went into remission for a very short period of time and then it reared its ugly head once again. Unfortunately, she lost her 3 year battle this January.  To say we are heartbroken is an understatement. This year we walk in her memory and the memory of so many others! 


Pop Dunn was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer and was given 6 months to live. This family didn't accept that diagnosis and found an amazing surgeon, Dr. Rosemurgy, who performed the Whipple on POP in February 2016.  This was followed by aggressive chemo treatments, many set backs and months of nursing himself back to health. He is now 6 years cancer free and doing well.  We are all so blessed to still have him with us. He will be walking with us this year in memory of MOM.


WE know first hand that is not the case for many who get diagnosed with this horrible disease and that is why WE WALK!!!

This year in particular, PLEASE make a donation of any size to get us one step closer to our fundraising goal, raising awareness and improving the lives of patients/families impacted by Pancreatic Cancer.

Together WE can make a DIFFERENCE!!
Thank you for your support.
