Lucky Charms

Four years ago, I was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer.  With the help of my family and friends, my Lucky Charms if you will, and a great medical team, I'm still here.  Many with this devasting diagnosis are not as lucky and that's why I’m taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023.

I want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and I need your help to do that!

PanCAN PurpleStride is the number one way PanCAN raises money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients, and gives them free, personalized one-to-one support through PanCAN Patient Services. Their work is important, not just in the present, but also for future generations.      

My siblings have been with me throughout my diagnosis and treatment and will join me at Harriet Island on Saturday, April 29th for PanCAN Purple Stride. PurpleStride is for everyone, and I’d love for you to join us (Team: Lucky Charms).  Just click the Register button at the top of this page and follow a few easy steps to get set up. And anyone who registers and raises $50 will receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2023 T-shirt!  Whether you donate or not, I appreciate your support.  

Come walk with us! And cross your fingers for a warm spring day!  Loila
