Wage Hope at PurpleStride. The Walk to End Pancreatic Cancer.

On Saturday, April 29th as part of team Forza Bruno! I walk in loving memory of my father Bruno Gallinelli.  He was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer in November 2019 and passed a year later after a difficult battle. He lived a beautiful life full of love and adventure. He leaves behind a great legacy, and together we stride in memory of him. We wage hope for better outcomes for patients and families which this devastating disease impacts. 

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. 

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

And finally, considering joining our team Forza Bruno! on Saturday, April 30th in Boston MA at Carson Beach!
