Marialana's Mob


Raised: $70

Goal: $2,500

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

In July of 2017, my beloved best friend and grandmother was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer.  At the time, I knew nothing about it.  I didn't know that this disease has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers at just 9%.  I didn't know that in just one month, my best friend would become my guardian angel.  I didn't know that when you're dying, your body slowly weakens and one day you just can't stand up anymore.  I didn't know that on 8 liters of oxygen, you can't lay too flat.  I wish I knew the early signs and symptoms.  I wish there was active early prevention.  Help us fight for awareness, early prevention, support, and most importantly; a cure.

Join us in Spring 2020 to honor Marialana Bowser (12/07/53-08/23/2017) at the Purple Stride Pittsburgh walk.

Our fundraising goal is $2500, but we need more

Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating to our team, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020. 

Whether you can attend or not, please consider making a donation.  Don't forget to share our page and donation link!
