Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

In March of 2020, I went to the ER with what I thought was simple abdominal discomfort. Little did I know, my life would be changed forever as I was told "you may have pancreatic cancer".  After multiple tests the next day, the diagnosis was confirmed.  By the third day I was in surgery with my wonderful removing the entire tumor and resecting it free from surrounding veins/arteries. Because of Covid, I endured my diagnosis,  major surgery and recovery alone in the hospital.  I later learned that my cancer was classified stage 1A, but that I would need chemotherapy and radiation.  I endured 6 months of Florfirinox chemotherapy followed by 25 rounds of radiation with 6 oral chemo pills daily.  As of now, 18 months later,  I am living cancer free and ready to raise money for awareness.  This is a deadly disease and very rarely caught early.  Raising money for pancreatic cancer is something very dear to my heart as I am proud to be a PC survivor.  This has been a long, hard and tough road, but I walked it with my family and friends. I am here today alive, well and ready to do this, while I live a long life.  #purplestrongforever #wifemomfighter

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your support

Much love and hugs to all
