Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

I've been told by family and friends that some cards get declined when they attempt to make a donation. If that is the case for you, please send the donation to me via PayPal ( with "PurpleStride" as the subject and a custom message (if you want to add it) and I will then add the donation amount to the fundraiser with your name. 

Alcuni amici e familiari mi hanno riferito che alcune carte vengono rifiutate quando si prova a fare una donazione. Se vi succcede, mandate la donazione a me tramite PayPal ( con soggetto "PurpleStride" e un messaggio personalizzato (se volete includerlo) e aggiungerò personalmente la donazione alla raccolta fondi con il vostro nome. 


Welcome to my personal fundraising page for PurpleStride!

I was diagnosed with a solid pseudopapillary pancreatic tumor in October 2019. I underwent Whipple's procedure to remove it in December 2019, removing part of the head of my pancreas, my gallbladder, and my duodenum.

In May 2020 I had some complications and underwent more surgeries, but now I am okay and working on gaining my physical and mental strength back.

Using this strength I earned back, I plan on participating in PurpleStride on April 30, 2022 in San Francisco.

Any and all donations made to my personal fundraising page or to PanCAN will help patients and families affected by pancreatic cancer.

Thank you for your support.


Benvenuti alla mia pagina personale della raccolta fondi di PurpleStride!

Nell'Ottobre 2019 mi hanno diagnosticato un tumore solido pseudopapillare alla testa del pancreas. A dicembre dello stesso anno ho subito una duodenocefalopancreasectomia con colecistisectomia, rimuovendo parte della testa del pancreas, la cistifellea, e il duodeno.

A Maggio 2020 ho avuto alcune complicanze e ho subito altri interventi, ma adesso sto bene e sto lavorando per riguadagnare la mia forza fisica e mentale.

Per questo ho deciso di participate a PurpleStride il 30 Aprile 2022 a San Francisco.

Tutte le donazioni fatte sulla mia pagina personale o direttamente a PanCAN aiuteranno i pazienti colpiti dal tumore al pancreas e le loro famiglie.

Vi ringrazio per il vostro supporto.
