Welcome to our team fundraising page!

On March 17th, 2020, my father passed away from stage 4 pancreatic cancer. At 56 years old, his life was cut short. In two months, this horrible disease took everything out of him and we lost an amazing person. I urge you to donate, join, or share this page in his honor. 

My dad, Gary was the best person. He was a kid at heart. Never taking himself too seriously, he taught us how to love life. His jokes, funny faces, love of music, gangster movies and everything extra will live on with us forever. Seeing how much this disease affected him and put his body through everything, his shine never dulled. He never once wanted to quit or give up on his fight. 

This past year has been about dedicating ourselves to my dad during his sickness and making sure people know his story after he is gone. Thinking about a world without my dad has been a hard concept to grasp and I am constantly reminding myself that this is sadly our reality. We are dedicated to bringing awareness to this disease that a year ago we knew nothing about. Join us in spreading the word. 

We would love for you to join us VIRTUALLY on June 12th, 2021 to rock your purple, walk as far as you can and to commit yourself to helping us  end pancreatic cancer in honor of our beloved Gary.. An amazing son, father, husband and man.. Forever in our hearts. LETS KEEP FIGHTING! 

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?

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.
