Welcome to my PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Thank you for supporting my PanCAN PurpleStride fundraiser!

2023 was a life changing year for me.  After my breast cancer diagnosis and mastectomy in January, in March I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  It was diagnosed VERY early and between chemotherapy and surgery I am happy to say I am currently cancer free!  While I will have to continue to go undergo tests and scans on a regular basis, I have to say I am lucky with my outcome so far.  

After my initial diagnosis I began researching support for those battling pancreatic cancer and I found the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.  They provide support and information not only for patients, but for survivors and caregivers.  I made a call to their one-to-one support group and was provided excellent information related to treatments, doctors, and clinical trials which helped me with the decisions for my treatment with my doctors and second opinions.  

I want to make an impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and I need you to do it!

I’m taking steps at the ultimate walk to end pancreatic cancer, PanCAN PurpleStride, on Saturday, April 27, 2024.

PurpleStride participants raise money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients; free, personalized, one-to-one support through PanCAN Patient Services; and more.

Here’s where you come in! I’ve set an ambitious fundraising goal and need your donations! A gift of any size will help patients and families facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

Want to help in a bigger way? Join me by registering for PurpleStride! Register for free, raise $50 and you’ll receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2024 T-shirt!

Let’s show everyone impacted by pancreatic cancer that we’re fighting for them.

I’m grateful for your support!
