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 underwent 8 months of chemo and radiation in 2021.  2022 was a good year, no sign of cancer in any of my scans.  January and February 2023 after many tests, it was confirmed my cancer had returned.  

I have been undergoing chemotherapy since March 8, 2023, 1 day removed from my 2 year anniversary of my pancreatic cancer diagnosis.  I have been tolerating the weekly chemo and am scheduled for surgery on December 1.  Unfortunately my cancer has spread to my liver, lung and colon along with my abdominal lining.  Started new chemotherapy this week and pray it shrinks and stops the spread of cancer.

Please join my team to help raise funds to find a cure and raise the survival rate past 5 years.

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

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.
