Erika McCormick

Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

To know my dad was to love him- Ken McCormick was a vibrant soul who offered so much joy and love to his family, his friends, and his community who he served his entire life. Pancreatic cancer took him from us all too soon. I miss him everyday. While he was undergoing treatment, my dad would often write updates on his thoughts and experiences. One read: "I do encourage all to treat every experience as a blessing, all things have lessons that can be learned, we just need to find the hidden message in the pain." 

I want to continue to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in his honor. I have become involved in the community of this charitable organization and have met so many strong survivors and loved ones impacted by this horrible disease. My dad would have loved them! This has been one of my hidden messages in the pain of losing him. 

This year I am participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs, research, and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Every donation 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. 

If you are able, please join me in raising money for this cause. Donations of any size are appreciated!
