Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

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.

My friend Missy was taken from us way too soon.  We had brunch on September 12. We laughed and enjoyed ourselves, made dinner reservations for a scheduled trip to Florida. Days later, Missy’s life completely changed.  She felt off and a little short of breath. Saw her doctor and was soon diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  She didn’t have symptoms! After the diagnosis, she planned to fight like hell, but God had other plans for her.   This aggressive illness took her on October 21.  5 weeks!!  It still feels like a nightmare.  We had so many plans.  We never got to lay on the beach together in Florida. 

I am walking for my friend.  We must find a cure and find ways to diagnose this disease when there is still a chance to fight.  

Missy was a wonderful person.  I met her when she borrowed my red crayon in first grade. She had the best laugh and I’m so lucky to have had her in my life. Please help me raise money in her honor.  ❤☘

Thank you for your support.
