Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Welcome, friends, to my Purple Stride page. Most of you know that Susie will not survive this challenging disease, just like so many before her, and there is nothing I can do to change that. What I can do is raise awareness and support to change the future regarding pancreatic cancer for our children, our loved ones, and our friends we know and have yet to meet.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest forms of cancer, in large part because there are no screening tools, cancers are caught too late to treat well, if at all, and the treatments available are limited. It is my earnest hope we can put a dent in changing these facts through more and more research.

We can make a difference with your support.

Susie and I 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.

Walk with us by joining our team, Step by Step (there is no cost to be on the team), raise funds/contribute if you’re comfortable doing so, share this with others.

*The roughly 3 mi walk this year will be at Portland International Raceway with close attention to Covid safety for all.

Please make a gift of any size to move a little closer to the Step by Step Team fundraising goal and to help improve more patients’ lives.

The Step by Step team goal is $10, 000, and any money donated to my personal page, any member of the team, or the team page goes toward this goal.

With abundant gratitude and hope, Bruce.
