Goal: $6,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

My husband Bert was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on Christmas Eve 2019. He has since endured 7 months of chemo, 6 weeks of radiation and underwent the whipple surgery at the end of August.

Bert continues his fight with strength and dignity in order to beat the odds. We live our lives one day at a time and full of hope. It has not been easy - especially doing all his through a pandemic - but he has amazed me with his perseverance.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 9%. Last year pancreatic cancer became the third leading cause of cancer related deaths in US. There is no test available for early detection as there are for many other cancers. 

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.
