Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

On January 13, 2021 my HERO was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and on February 27, 2021 he gained his angel wings. 

Friends PLEASE pass this along this cause is important to me. PLEASE help us honor my dad, my hero, the best dad, pappy, and human being anyone could ever ask for, taken way too soon from this vile cancer! His loss has been so devastating to our family. So now we join the fight to bring awareness, to this terrible disease. With the hopes, that we can help raise money for research! Maybe one day they will be able to screen for early detection so other families do not have to be devastated with an unbearable loss, like ours.

I’m going to help make progress, with your support. I’m participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride. This year we are striding virtually, and our team will be walking at the trail in Ligonier. 

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

This is a year-roundational movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

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. 

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
