Welcome to my PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

This year, we will be honoring the late Nikos Tsakmakis during the PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023 in Boston.
It was March 22nd, 2022 when we received Nikos’ diagnosis of Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. There was barely enough time to digest the news, as we lost Niko on June 2nd that same year. A son, husband, brother, and friend with the heart of a warrior whose dying wish was to try to save lives through raising awareness around the signs and symptoms of this silent killer.
Pancreatic cancer is considered a rare cancer. It is however the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States with the highest mortality rate of all major cancers. PurpleStride is the ultimate walk to end pancreatic cancer. Supporting this foundation can help honor those we lost, celebrate survivors and raise funds for essential research like the PanCAN Early Detection Initiative and free resources and support from PanCAN Patient Services.

We want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and we need your help to do that! 

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!

Your contribution matters. Every dollar counts and can help save a life. Please consider donating to our team, Nikos’ Nation. Together, we fight for Niko and all pancreatic cancer patients.
