Welcome to Doug's PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

I'm participating in PanCAN's PurpleStride on Saturday, April 27, 2024 to honor the 50th anniversary of first meeting this beautiful woman, and the wonderful children and grandchildren we experienced together during 42 years of marriage.

Becky brought joy, kindness, and compassion to all who knew her.  She was a fervent advocate for children and a parent coach through the Connected Families organization.

Becky was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March 2022.  She participated in PanCAN PurpleStride the next month in Sugar House Park, Salt Lake City.  The PanCan community embraced her and showered her with love and support.  Things we both desperately needed at that time.  She battled her illness with courage, grace, and determination, always encouraging others through words and writing.  Her regular text messages to friends and family became a source of inspiration to all.

Sadly, her battle came to an end in December 2022.  

Her battle is over, but ours is not!  Each of us can individually and collectively make a huge step toward improving patient outcomes through improved early detection and treatments!

I want to accelerate progress against pancreatic cancer – and I need your help to do that!

PanCAN PurpleStride is the number one way PanCAN raises money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients, and gives them free, personalized one-to-one support through PanCAN Patient Services.

Here’s where you come in! I’ve set an ambitious fundraising goal – because the more money I raise, the bigger impact we make – and would appreciate a gift of any size to help me get there. 

PanCAN PurpleStride is for everyone, and I’d love for 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!

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 love and support!
