Goal: $5,000

Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

In July of last year, Carol Riesmeyer (O'C / Mayme / Mom) was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  While it came as a shock to everyone, she has responded with a positive attitude and been tackling the treatment head-on with some encouraging results to date.  

She has always taken care of everyone else, so her children, grandchildren, friends, and family want to continue to support Carol in her fight against this disease.  We will be walking in PanCAN's PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.  Her team, OC's Crew will be participating in the PurpleStride walk at Soldier Field in Chicago on Saturday, April 30th, 2022.   

We want to invite you to join our team as a participant in the walk, or to make a gift of any size to get us one step closer to our fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 

Thank you for your support.
