In Honor of my Beautiful Wife, Joetta McPherson

I lost my beautiful wife and my soul mate, Joetta McPherson, on December 21, 2022, at the young age of 59 to pancreatic cancer. She was the love of my life.

In her honor, I am raising funds for PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023 to fight this horrible disease, which is something she would want and would be proud of.

Please make a donation to my personal fundraising efforts and join my Team on the walk/run. Show Joetta that we will not give up and will not forget.  She gave to everyone she met. Let's honor her spirit and make a difference for those coming up behind her. #CelebrateJoetta
