Our Peter'sPride team was established in 2009 for the first San Antonio Purple Stride. Peter was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer in August of that year. Throughout the last 10 years we have been a pride of lions, ROARing and fighting with him. 10 years of surgeries, multiple chemos, procedures, hospitalizations and clinical trials showed what an amazing fighter he was. During those years he never stopped reaching out to others with encouraging words to ROAR for better detection, treatments and support for patients, caregivers ,family and friends touched by PC. That is what PanCAN is all about. He knew that research was a key to his 10 year survival and that more and more patients are going to benefit from PanCAN's amazing support for research.
In August 2019, Peter developed sepsis (again). After a lengthy hospitalization, he was improving at home and planning on joining another clinical trial. On September 26 he passed away at home, surrounded by his family and the grace of the Lord. Team Peter'sPride started to ROAR and together we raised over $10,000 for PurpleStride San Antonio 2019. This awesome demonstration of love and honor was overwhelming. . Our sincere thanks to all of you.
Please join us again this year to support the amazing efforts of PanCAN through PurpleStrides all over the country. We look forward to seeing you in November. Come ROAR with us!
