Welcome to Paul's Pancreatic Cancer Fundraising Page (in honor of KCM)

Four days before Christmas, our lives changed with the news of Keiley's mom Kaye's diagnosis of Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

This disease is notorious for showing up just as it did for Kaye: with zero warning until the cancer has already progressed tremendously. 

Kaye ("Millie" to me!) is the sweetest mom-in-law I could have dreamed of. In addition to our bond and love, she has done remarkable things for others over her life, fundraising for the American Cancer Society, and so much more. 

As she fights her fight, and the rest of us support her in her fight, while engaging in our own interpersonal battles, we want to do everything we can to raise awareness and money for patients who are in their own battles with this awful disease.

Not only am I proud to call Kaye my mother-in-law, I am proud that her daughter and my wife, Keiley, has taken the wheel in turning a dire situation into something that can make a positive impact for others experiencing similar situations. 

Together, we want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients possible – and we need your help!!! 

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.

We've set an ambitious fundraising goal and need your donations. Any amount you are able and willing to donate will make a difference!!

We are also hoping to see as many of you as possible on April 27, 2024 at the ultimate walk to end pancreatic cancer, the PanCAN PurpleStride at the Auraria Campus/Tivoli Quad (Denver). 

Thank you in advance for making a difference in the lives of others. I’m grateful for your support!
