Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

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

I stride in my brother's memory.

My brother, Herman, was diagnosed in May 2019 and he lost his battle 8 short months later on February 9, 2020. He was 51 yrs old. When he received his diagnosis we were all devastated. He had no risk factors for pancreatic cancer. Being an engineer, Herman approached this methodically. Reading everything that he could, talking to survivors to see what their approach was. I helped him reach out to the best physicians in the area. He fought this battle with every last ounce of energy.  He knew the prognosis and his only wish was to see his daughter graduate from high school and maybe take a vacation with her before she went off to college. Unfortunately, the cancer had other plans. I watched this cancer suck the life out of him. He underwent procedures that he would never have considered before. He suffered through the horrendous pain. It's my hope that one day, no one will have to endure what he had to go through. Only through research can that occur. So I stride in my brother's memory and continue the battle on his behalf. 

Please consider donating to this cause. 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 and most importantly, support their research efforts so that we can get early detection testing, better treatment and increase the odds of surviving this cancer.

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

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.

There is not one day that goes by that I don't think of Herman. I love you and will continue to fight for you.

Thank you for your support.
