Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we! The 5 year survival rate for Pancreatic Cancer is only 11%. Please reflect on that. I plan to be one of those very fortunate 11%.   

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

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

I contacted PanCan shortly after receiving my PC diagnosis. They quickly sent me stats regarding high volume cancer centers i.e. places where Doctors had lots of practice in pancreatic cancer surgery.  I found my surgeon - Dr. Malafa at Moffitt Cancer Center who performed successful surgery. Only between 10-15% of PC patients even qualify for surgery because it is too late. So it's vitally important that research advances in early detection.

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. 

Please make a gift of any size to get me one step closer to my fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. Or join me on  Team McT and participate here in Tampa.

Thank you for your support.

Always Barb
