Welcome to OUR PurpleStride Fundraiser!

On April 30th, we are participating inPanCAN's PurpleStride walk in Boston in support of the fight against pancreatic cancer. We are kindly asking for your support for this event by making a donation (of any size). Every dollar we raise will put us one step closer towards ending this disease. 

This April marks one year since we lost Bryan's sister, Keri, to pancreatic cancer at the young age of 39. Like most pancreatic cancer patients, Keri's symptoms presented when her cancer was at an advanced stage, which limited her treatment options and her chance of survival. Through Keri’s illness, we also learned that several of our family members have a genetic trait the raises our likelihood of developing pancreatic cancer in the future. 

Today, the 5 year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is only about 10%. PanCAN is working to change this through helping people understand the risks, funding a major early detection initiative, and providing funding for improved treatment options. We are are committed to helping this effort, in honor of Keri's life and in support of all of those impacted by pancreatic cancer.
