Welcome to my PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Hey, there!

I’m taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023.  The reason this fundraiser interest me because my Olga Casanova-Leyva, died of pancreatic cancer in November of  2021. She was diagnosed in August of 2021 and after three months with her, I learned that you need to be strong for yourself and your family (no matter what the outcome). My mom also taught me to never take anything for granted. Each day is a gift that we should use to the fullest. This PanCan PurpleStride 5k to raise money for research to help find a cure pancreatic cancer.


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

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 – and would appreciate a gift of any size to help me get there. 

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!

Can I 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!
