Help Mary Beth Raise Funds for Pancreatic Research

My younger sister, Julie, AKA "Warrior Woman" was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer in November 2017. On April 30th, she and her family are traveling to Boston to declare, "I AM A SURVIVOR!" and will participate in the Purple Strides Walk to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN).

There is NO CURE for pancreatic cancer, and most patients pass away within two years. My sister is walking to help raise money for research to change that statistic! 

Julie is 55 years young, married, with two beautiful children. Julie has ALWAYS raised funds for my daughter, Angelica, for cystic fibrosis. Now, it's time for me to help my little sister out and raise funds to find a cure for pancreatic cancer!!! I don't want to imagine life without my sister. 

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither will I!

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

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.

Thank you for your support.
