Welcome to Abby's Personal Fundraising Page!

I knew Mrs Janet my entire life - she was my Grandma Bookie's best friend and has been so important to me and my family. My mom tells me stories all of the time about how she would ride horses with Janet when she was little, my Bookie and her have been through a lot together, and I loved visiting her a couple of times a year - feeding her goats and riding her golf cart! She has always loved me and my family as her own and we love her as our family too. 

I loved that Janet was so nice and caring to everyone she sees. Seeing Janet suffering really hurts inside. And losing her to pancreatic cancer in November was awful. 

I'm in 6th grade at The Summit Country Day and our year long project is about perseverance this year. We were asked to pick a big goal to focus on this year, and I thought about Janet - and what I could do to help her and make sure her story is told and that there is support for others with this horrible disease.

My big goal is to help fight cancer in honor of Janet by running the PurpleStride 5K, a pancreatic cancer run in April but also for my team to raise $5,000. 

I hope you will either run or walk with me and raise money too or will donate to my run.

I can also take venmo, paypal, cash or check or you can support me in the fundraising efforts I have planned like bake sales and t-shirt sales. 

Thank you for your support,



I’m going to help make progress, with your support.

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. 

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you again.
