Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

I was diagnosed with stage 2 Pancreatic cancer in March 2021.  I had major abdominal surgery to remove the tumor on my pancreas.  The cancer spread to my stomach.  I had 1/2 of my pancreas removed, 1/3 of my stomach and all of my spleen.  I have undergone chemotherapy treatments for 7 months.  My latest scan showed I was cancer free.  I will be starting radiation and oral chemotherapy treatment in November and with no set backs will complete right before the new year.

I am one of the lucky ones to have caught this cancer before it spread too far.  I have had fabulous doctor's and nurses for my treatment.  The best family and friends for support and prayers.  

When I first learned of my diagnosed I went to the pancreatic cancer action network and the st Louis cancer support center for information and help.

By walking this is my way to say thank you and help other pancreatic cancer patients.  

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 for your support.
