Wage Hope at PurpleStride. The walk to end pancreatic cancer.
Wage Hope to end pancreatic cancer
On March 14, 2019, I received some news that no person wants to hear, you have pancreatic cancer. I never imagined I'd get cancer, but I wasn't in any denial either. It was time to put on the gloves and fight the fight. I was fortunate because it was caught early and hadn't spread to any other organs. After extensive chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, I am now a one year survivor as of March 14th of this year and plan to celebrate many more survival years. There are not enough words of thanks for the medical teams at Froedtert & the Medical College and St. Elizabeth's Hospital for the care I've received. I am eternally grateful. This experience has inspired me to raise funds for pancreatic cancer research so new treatments can be discovered.
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.
I’ve stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer.Will you help me rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today or participating in the walk with me?
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.
