Raised: $1,521

Goal: $2,500

Welcome to Laura's PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Team Friday Matt was a great success last year, raising nearly $5000. We had a lot of fun walking last year and it will be helpful to be together this year to celebrate his life. 

Matt's success with chemo and surgery in 2022 is directly a result of research in the years that came before his diagnosis. Although metastasis and related complications led to Matt passing away on February 8, 2023, this only reinforces for me the need for research and independent patient support services for those who are (and who will be) impacted by this very cruel disease. 

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. 

Matt and I benefited several  times from PanCan’s support services. I’ve referred other families to this resource. 

Please make a gift of any size to get me one step closer to my fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 

Thank you for your support.
