Welcome to Denise's PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Hello everyone!

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

I’ve learned a lot about pancreatic cancer since March 2022, when my sister-in-law, Becky Wood, was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. She had no indication that anything was wrong with her until two weeks before her diagnosis! 

Becky died on December 6 following a 9-month battle. My heart is grieving for the loss of this kind and generous soul. She touched so many lives with her loving spirit. 

I want to help other people who are facing the same battle that Becky did. There needs to be a better path to diagnosing sooner and creating better outcomes for patients like Becky. PanCAN’s dedicated team of doctors, researchers, volunteers, and doners are working tirelessly toward that very goal!

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. I would so appreciate a gift of any size to help me get there. 

Can I count on you to get us one step closer to the day where pancreatic cancer patients don’t just survive but thrive?

Thank you for your support!
