Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer

Karen Horcher died December 26th, 2015 after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer for less than 3 months. She focused her energy on quality over quantity of life. She spent her life tending to the needs of others--whether she knew them or not. She would donate her time, money, energy, and love to people from all walks of life. Karen was someone who loved on all, free from bias. Even in her last hours, she was comforting all in her family. Easily, one of the most selfless and altruistic person you have every met! She was my grandmother...and the best grandmother anyone could ever ask for! All of us love her dearly and miss her every day!

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. 

Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating to our team, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020. 

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
