Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we! Help George and others who battle this difficult and scary disease.

In July 2021, my husband George, at age 46, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. His difficult journey was made easier with the support of his medical team, encouragement from our friend Don Gabany (another pancreatic survivor!), generosity from friends and family, and prayers from all over the world. George underwent 8 rounds of intense chemotherapy, a grueling Whipple Procedure, followed by 4 more rounds of chemotherapy.  He recently finished his treatments and is working hard to regain his strength, stamina, and pack on some pounds!  

The Murphy family is participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds life-changing programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. Every dollar you give means more patients like George can benefit from PanCAN’s services, resources, and research. 

Not only are we walking for George, but for his dad, Bryan, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2010.

We're going to help make progress, with your support. Please 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!
