Welcome to our PanCAN PurpleStride Team Fundraising Page!

In April of 2022, my fun loving husband David, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic cancer. He had little to no symptoms and had always led a healthy, active lifestyle. Dave courageously battled this horrible disease remaining positive and doing what he always did throughout-making everyone around him smile. Dave was taken away from us way too soon on September 20th of last year.  For those that were fortunate enough to know him, his memory will continue to live on in our hearts.  Dave was very passionate about the funding for research in order to find ways for an early diagnosis and making headway towards a cure. I encourage you to join his team as participants or make a gift of ANY size to celebrate and honor Dave as well as support those affected by pancreatic cancer.
