Welcome to Lisa's Personal PanCAN PurpleStride Fundraising Page!


You may know that I lost my husband, Brandon, to pancreatic cancer on February 11, 2022.  He was diagnosed October 4, 2019.  Brandon was sick  for a long time before he was finally diagnosed.  It took more than 5 months of bouncing from doctor to doctor before one suggested a scan that finally started to reveal the mass in his pancreas.   

Brandon was diagnosed at stage 4.  With how aggressive pancreatic cancer is, I often wonder if a doctor had thought to order a scan earlier if the outcome would have been different.  Alternatively, I wonder if we had known enough about this cancer to suggest a scan, if that would have made a difference.

By participating in PurpleStride, I hope to honor my husband by helping to spread the word and raise awareness about pancreatic cancer.  I'd love to see this cancer eradicated totally.  Until then, I'd like to see future pancreatic cancer diagnoses delivered with more hope than Brandon was offered. 

I've got a personal fundraising goal and a team one.  Below gives a bit more information about how you can help by donating to my personal goal, my team goal, or by joining my team, Greedy B's Battalion.

Thanks for taking time to read this!



I’m taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023.

I want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – 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 support!
