On February 18, 2019 Tricia was told she most likely had pancreatic cancer. Tests were ordered, results were rushed, and just a few days later, on February 21, 2019, her diagnosis was confirmed - stage 4 malignant adenocarcinoma. Her life as she knew it was thrown into turmoil of catastrophic proportions. Normal everyday life was replaced with countless doctor visits, agonizing chemotherapy, and endless medication.
Throughout Tricia's journey her tenacious spirit, optimism, and faith have served her well. Her family and friends have embraced her - providing so much love and support. She constantly expresses her gratitude for the overwhelming generosity from Team Tricia.
Tricia wanted her team name to be Tricia's Warriors. By definition a warrior is a brave or experienced soldier or fighter. What a perfect name as she is brave and a fighter. Let's fight with her and join her at the Purple Stride and make a difference against pancreatic cancer. We hope to see you on June 7th and for those dear friends in California we know you will be there in spirit.
