Welcome to my PanCAN PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Thank you for supporting my PanCAN PurpleStride fundraiser!

On Dec 4th, 2023 I started chemotherapy treatments for pancreatic cancer. I will have just one cycle remaining on April 27, when I will celebrate by walking with my team at the PurpleStride event. 

Throughout this cancer journey I have been so incredibly fortunate to have a wonderful support network of family and friends, both near and far. I am also grateful for the team of Northwestern doctors and nurses, and for the tests and treatments that have been available to me. The money we raise at this event will help provide support, treatment, and hope to others battling this disease. 

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

If you would like to help, please consider a donation, or join our Purple Posse team by registering for PurpleStride! Register for free, raise $50 and you’ll receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2024 T-shirt!

Thank you so much for your support!
