Sonny Side-Up





Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer

Vic, Dad, Poppa, Sonny…we miss him every day.

Home Depot lost a loyal customer on July 9, 2017, when he passed away at a beautiful Hospice Home, we were at his side. Dad was 81, and left behind a strong loving family, and a garage full of home repair tools and supplies.  

We no longer get messages that bananas are on sale, or where to find the cheapest gas prices in town. We sorely miss his fix-it skills, but his legacy lives on. We shared his treasures that we found, an extensive coin collection, his class ring, a pristine box of 1986 golf balls, about 150 screwdrivers, many odds and ends, and three screws tightly clasped, sealed and taped in a manila envelope. Now and forever, he still makes us laugh!

My dad’s cancer was rare and incurable.  Our best hope at the time was to battle it in the same way Pancreatic Cancer is treated. We’ve learned a lot in this journey. One thing for certain is that money is desperately needed for research.

To honor our dad, lovingly called “Sonny” by family & friends since childhood, we are committed to helping raise money for research.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 10%. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. 

We’ve 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 give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients.

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