Welcome to GRAMMY'S GANG'S PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!


Hey, there!

 

My siblings and I are taking steps to end pancreatic cancer in honor of our Moma, Darlene Collins, at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023. We want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients and I need your help to do that! 

Our Moma was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer on July 6, 2022 and was given a prognosis of 12 months or less with chemo OR 6 months or less without chemo. She received one chemo treatment and her body reacted badly to that so we all decided to withdraw her from chemo treatments in hopes that she would recover and live comfortably the rest of her days. 6 1/2 weeks after her diagnosis, on August 20, 2022 she passed away very comfortable in her own home and in fact she was in the same bedroom she grew up in. Our Moma was a huge part of our lives and the one we looked up to the most! Going forward we want to help prevent and bring awareness to Pancreatic Cancer every way we can in honor of her! 

 

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! We've set an ambitious fundraising goal because the more money we raise, the bigger impact we make and would appreciate a gift of any size to help us get there. 

 

PanCAN PurpleStride is for everyone, and we'd love for you to join us! 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 we 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!

Chris, Cara, Cassie & Cayle
