Welcome to my PurpleStride Fundraising Page!

Hello and welcome to my PurpleStride page in honor of my wonderful father, Milton B. Schulle, who I miss very much. 

My father passed away last August, after a Pancreatic cancer diagnosis in March. I did not think when I participated in PurpleStride last year that he would not be here, in fact I had hopes we would be walking together in this years event. My Dad was equally hopeful, but treatments were challenging and in spite of his best efforts he lost his battle. 

My dad was a fighter and he would be proud of my efforts towards finding a cure and better treatments for this disease. Pancreatic Cancer will be newly diagnosed in 65,000 people this year - many of whom are young, with no history in their family or risk factors. Thousands of families will be impacted by this disease this year and it continues to be the most aggressive of the major cancers with a 5 year survival rate of 13%, up just 1% from last year. 

Please help me achieve my goal.  A donation of any size is very much appreciated. 

Thank You, Joanne
