Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Dear Friends and Family,

This Saturday, April 30th, Rich, Peter and I will be participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride Walk at Magnuson Park, a national event that funds life-changing programs, resources and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. We are walking in honor and support of our sweet friend, Erica, who five months ago at age 47 was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. We have not lost hope but understand the reality of the situation. Erica is a loving mother to two young boys (Dominic,12, and Pierce, our godson,10), wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.

Every dollar raised for this disease means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information and resources that can make a meaningful difference in their lives during a very difficult time in their lives. 

The current relative 5-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer is 11%. The stage 4 survival rate is just 1%. Funds raised also support vital research that will improve these odds for patients like Erica. 

Please consider supporting this worthy cause.  No gift is too small. Thank you. 

With sincere appreciation,

Christina, Rich and Peter

**** We are sad to relay that Erica passed on from this earthly life. We will still be walking on Saturday but now in her memory and support of others battling this horrific disease. Please keep her children and her entire family in your thoughts and/or prayers. We are immensely grateful for your support. Thank you.
