Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page! For GRAMS PURPLE MONKEYS

As you know pancreatic cancer is personal to me. April 2020 my sweet mom Donna was diagnosed with metastatic stage 4 pancreatic cancer. She fought with grace, strength and dignity until she gained her PurpleAngel wings 6 months later on  Oct 13, 2020.  Allie always says, “Gram may have had cancer but cancer didn’t have her!”

I wanted to honor my moms life, memory  and battle, so in 2021 I began volunteering with the PanCAN Action Network as the November Awareness Chair in CLE.  While it won’t help my mom, I hope to help future generations by raising awareness and funds for research, early detection, treatments and one day a cure.  

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 our team - Grams Purple Monkeys - one step closer to our fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 

Patients and families need us now more than ever. 

I so appreciate you, your donation and your support in waging war on this horrific cancer. One day there will be a cure!   

I appreciate you! 

Thank you!

Hugs and love,
