Welcome to My Personal Page

As we approach almost two years since my dad lost his battle to Pancreatic Cancer, the void of such an extraordinary man is still felt every day to so many. As I reflect on the time we had left with Walter in the short four months from diagnosis till his last day on this earth, I try to grasp the silver lining in the bonding and love that we were able to share in that short time.  

From the time of being diagnosed, my father did everything he could to stay with us on this earth while remaining so incredibly strong for not only our family but for his friends that surrounded him in his last months. 

The reality is that the deadly disease that blindsided all of us has a minimal survival rate. Statistics were not on our side and this disease continues to be one of the deadliest forms of cancer. 

My father spent so much of his life giving back to other people through charity and community. My family and I will walk to help support the fight against Pancreatic Cancer on May 1st in Kansas City through the virtual Purple Stride KC event. We hope to continue to honor my father's legacy by helping raise awareness, raise funds to fight the disease and hopefully give light to those who are or will experience a terrible diagnosis. 

So many of you joined us last year in helping raise money and awareness and we hope you will join us again this May! We encourage you to join our team and walk on May 1st, wherever you may be! 

I lost a bigger piece of me than I could have ever imagined on April 10th, 2019, and this May I will walk in honor of my biggest fan from up above for those who are or have yet to experience this horrific disease. 

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. 

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.

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join me in the fight today.
