Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

I may not be able to stride on my own two feet yet, but that doesn't mean I can't #WageHope for my Shock!  I'm happy to be the newest member of the team!

#WAGEHOPE

When Ed became a member of a club that no one wants to join, in January 2017, we had 200 #SHOCKSTRONG wristbands made to make sure he knew he had a strong team behind him. In response, his wife Therese said "there aren't 200 people that like him!" Well, with the wristbands long gone, that team of 200+ continues to channel Ed for strength and inspiration.

After a successful Whipple surgery that February from his team at Johns Hopkins, along with an immunotherapy clinical trial and advanced cyber-knife radiation, THAT June Ed was proudly wearing one of the far-too-rare white SURVIVOR shirts at the Washington, DC Purple Stride - ONE WEEK out of the hospital. Over the next two years he continued his fight as the cancer returned, trying every treatment possible including proton radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Ed was a three-time Purple Stride participant, between DC and Maryland, proudly wearing his SURVIVOR gear at each race.

Throughout his battle, Ed made no excuses and was a Purple Stride PARTICIPANT at each one he attended. If you are unable to Stride with us, we ask that you contribute towards our goal as we participate on Ed's behalf. PANCAN is a resourceful and determined organization. Please read their message below. As an organization, PANCAN has a 4-Star (out of 4) rating from Charity Navigator; the dollars go to the mission.
