Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Joey Burrage was a husband, father, brother, son, uncle and friend to so many people. He was the most caring and down-to-earth person with such a kind way of always making everyone feel important, seen, and loved. His heart was bigger than life. 

Joey was so strong and courageous and fought like hell to see our son grow up, and to live a long married life with me. Things were going well for the first 6+months, but then things slowly started to take a turn and the chemo eventually stopped working. Our last chemo was Valentine's Day 2020, and this followed a series of hospital stays. A month later, just as the pandemic hit and the quarantine/lockdown, we went into hospice on the exact same day, March 17, 2020. Our world was moving so fast and yet standing still and our heart and spirit were broken. 

Kevin and I have formed a beautiful bond over these last few years and my adoption of him went through in December 2020. We talk about Joey every single day and we know that he is with us, and I'm proud he is my son, our son. 

I love you Joey, to the moon and back, forever and ever. Love always, your husband, Paul


Please consider making a donation to support PanCan PurpleStride on Joey's behalf, and/or joining us for our 5K walk around Lake Merritt on Saturday, June 5, if you are local, or on your own. We'll share love for our wonderful Joey, he'd be so proud and happy that we are trying to heal as family and friends, and that we'll make a difference for others in the future. 


The PanCan’s PurpleStride is a year-round national movement that funds life-changing programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Please join our team as a participant, or make a gift of any size to get us one step closer to our fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. You can donate to a team member or make a general donation to the team.

Thank you for your support.
