Thanks for stopping by Our PanCAN Page!

Hey, there!

If you're reading this, you're probably already considered a team member, close friend, or part of our family.  As many of you know, Daddy transitioned to his next life in heaven on July 14, 2022 from his 9-11 cancers took over his body.  Daddy fought a courageous, brutal fight and we often spoke about how we would continue to help others kick Pancre-ASS until we could have a world without cancer or at least one where we could fight a fair fight with more effective treatments and WIN more!!!

I assured Daddy that I would strive to become a Pancreatic Cancer Ambassador continuing his fight by helping to help extend other patients' lives, even longer than the extra 9 months we were blessed with after diagnosis. We credit that extra time with Daddy to PanCAN's clinical research studies and treatment trials that offered us so much hope, energy and will to continue to live up every last minute.  They bought us more precious time and that's exactly what your donations will do for others currently fighting for their lives.  With Pancreatic Cancer being the most aggressive form of cancer, least detectable and most rapidly attacking patients, most people only have weeks to live after being diagnosed.  

I've never liked asking people to donate for anything, but this year I'm skipping the Boy/Girl Scouts/School Annual Appeals and I'm making a very personal appeal to each of you to please make a monetary contribution to our PanCAN team, even if only just $1.  Together they all add up and make a difference.  

I want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and I need your help to do that!  Let's help fund the scientists waiting at the ready to create better more promising treatment that can keep you or your loved ones from ever having to die from this vicious disease.  

I’m taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023.  I hope you can join us in Dad's fight beyond his life.  

PanCAN PurpleStride is not just for current patients, but also to spare all of us from potential future battles of this kind.  I humbly ask you to join me! Just click the Register button at the top of this page and follow a few easy steps to get set up. And anyone who registers and raises $50 will receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2023 T-shirt that you can wear to the walk or to just let people know that you helped!

Can I count on you to get us one step closer to the day where pancreatic cancer patients don’t just survive but thrive?

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support!
