Welcome to my PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Hi everyone!!

Thank you for supporting my PanCAN PurpleStride fundraiser!

In memory and honor of my friend, Gil Grossman, I’m taking steps at the ultimate walk to end pancreatic cancer, PanCAN PurpleStride, on Saturday, April 27, 2024 in Washington DC. 

Gil died of pancreas cancer on October 30, 2023. I was his caregiver for 15 months. What a journey it was, for both of us. 

Gil brought light into everyone he met. Let's bring that same light to persons impacted by pancreatic cancer. 

A gift of any size will help patients and families facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

I’m grateful for your support!

Peace and love,

Dave Kirkland
