Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Dear All:

This past year on November 13, 2021, we lost my dad, Donald Klucken, to pancreatic cancer. The progression from his stage IV diagnosis to his passing was just about four months. For those who knew my dad, prior to his diagnosis, he had zero health issues and very minor symptoms, which shows how devastating and quick this cancer can be. It also shows how it can develop and spread often times without symptoms, which is why the 5-year survival rate is so low. 

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

In my dad's honor, 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.

My dad was such an amazing father, grandfather, husband, friend, and mentor. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Please share with your family and friends and help me raise money in honor of my dad for this fantastic organization! 

Thank you for your support.
