First, a Huge Thank You for those who have already donated what you can and joined my team. And Thank You for those who want to join the team, it truly is a great cause that I believe in with all my heart. We really would like for all to walk on Saturday if you can.
I have been have been the PurpleStride Chair for the past 3 years, and it has been an honor and a privilege to organize such an Amazing event in search for a cure. It would be wonderful if anyone is interested in volunteering the morning of the event to help get set up. To do so, you would just go to the same place that you donated and it will ask you if you want to become a volunteer. There are so many things to do the day of and that morning before the event takes place.
This fundraiser is very personal and important to me. I am WAGING HOPE for everyone who has ever been touched by this disease and in honor of my Mom Sue Walsh who died in March of 2007 from this disease. I'm raising money and awareness in supporting of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, as they are striving to raise awareness, find an early detection and fund clinical trials in hopes to find a Cure.
I have seen first hand what this disease does to a person, a loved one, and an entire family. It is the most painful cancer out there today. It is #3 on the list of leading cancers. We need to find a cure, but until then we need to find a way to prolong the survival rate of less than 5 years.
By making a donation to me, you are supporting efforts to help double the survival for this deadly disease by 2020.
Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!
