Welcome to PurpleStride 2023!

It's almost time for PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a national movement that funds life- changing programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Since my diagnosis almost 4 years ago, the survival rate for this cancer has increased from 7% to 12%. While this is a tremendous improvement, we'd love to see that number continue to rise. 

My daughter, Trisha, and I formed "Suzanne's Squad" to participate in PurpleStride and to support PanCAN and their efforts. Our first year was during the pandemic, last year was our 1st live walk. We are hoping to grow our team for the walk and to be a top ten fundraising team. Through the generosity of friends and family, "Suzanne's Squad" is currently #1 on the St. Louis team!  I hope you'll consider helping us keep this sweet spot! 

We would love for you to join our team "Suzanne's Squad" on Saturday, April 29th, at Forest Park. If you're unable to walk with us, would you please consider a donation? Simply go to: If this link doesn't work, please copy and past to your web browser.

Thank you for supporting our team, and from the bottom of my heart, a very special thanks for the support, prayers and encouragement you've given over the years. My family & I appreciate you more than words can express.
