Raised: $30

Goal: $1,500

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. Grandma and PawPaw were married for 64 years before pancreatic cancer claimed Pawpaw's life.  From the time of diagnosis until his death in 2015, PawPaw lived just 3.5 months.  For Grandma, the time from diagnosis until her death in 2019 was just 2 months.  They passed away almost 4 years apart from each other from the same exact disease.  Challenges remain in both the diagnosis and the treatment of pancreatic cancer, and it's important to support efforts to understand more about this cancer'scharacteristics and mechanisms in order to find treatments and cures.  Our family is dedicated to supporting efforts to fight for better diagnosis and better treatments as a way to honor them. 

We've stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer in PawPaw (Sonny) and Grandma (Glo)'s honor.  

Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. This organization supports research and clinical initiatives, but also supports patient services and advocacy.  By donating today, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020. 

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today - please make a donation and/or join our team: SEHRTainly Striding for a Cure!
