Carl's PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!


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

First, a formal word. 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.

Now, the personalized word. We all can say that cancer has affected our lives in some way, through family, a friend, or even ourselves. My Mom and Dad have both battled cancer, and won. We're blessed and thankful that they are still with us today. But we all know cancer isn't always a happy ending. Recently we lost a beautiful woman, a beautiful soul in our extended family, way too soon. Cancer sucks.

Those of you that know me know that I've never asked for anything, except my beautiful wife's hand in marriage. Here's where I step out of character. For this event I have set a fundraising goal, but it's not about the goal. I truly believe that a cure for cancer can be developed, but for reasons I won't get into, we're not there yet. Right now, the only way I know how to support research for a cure is prayer and donations.

Would I be able to count on you to donate to this cause? Any amount. Maybe skip buying that extra bag of chips at the grocery store or forgo that special Starbucks blend for a day. Don't do it for me, do it for your friends, your family, even yourself. Because we never know.

Thank you. If you've read this far, I know you truly care.
