Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Pancreatic Cancer - Two words no one should ever have to hear. We heard those words on November 17th, 2020, and we lost Jerry a short 6 days later on November 23rd, 2020. Jerry did not have the typical symptoms of the disease and didn't even show any signs of sickness until that November.

After the diagnosis and for the long days and months following his death, we learned more abut this disease than anyone would want to know. Through our research and outreach from friends, we found out about the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network ( We were impressed with their work with patients, survivors, and family members, along with their overall advocacy for awareness of this disease. Their hard work on driving awareness, fighting for more research, and their constant push for potential early detection has been amazing!!!

So we have created our team in Jerry's memory - GOING PURPLE FOR JERRY!!! We will be participating annually in their PurpleStride event to help raise funds and promote awareness. We ask for your support on April 30th, 2022 by either 1) joining our team to walk or raise funds, 2) by donating to one of our team members, or 3) by just keeping us in your thoughts that day. We appreciate the support we have received thus far for jerry, but let us use his memory to benefit others who will one day hear those 2 awful words and make it so that there is more hope for treatment and recovery for them.

Thank you on behalf of Jerry and his family!!
