Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

In 2020, our daughter and team captain, Sam, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I was at a loss and didn't know where to look for help. That's when I found PanCAN. I am beyond thankful for the resources and materials they provided me and my family at no cost. PanCAN helped my family be better prepared to tackle our pancreatic cancer journey.

I’m participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national 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. 

Pancreatic is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, yet one of the least funded and least researched. Patients and families, like ours, need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
