Welcome to our team fundraising page!

My sweet mom passed away on February 28, 2018.  She was diagnosed with stage 1 pancreatic cancer in August of 2016.  She was a candidate for surgery.  She went through months of chemo before she had surgery in the Spring of 2017.  Her surgery was successful with a few complications.  When that was done she was on the mend and enjoyed life through the Fall and holiday season.  The cancer came back and it came back fast and ugly.  We were told that she had 6 months.  That was the most devistating thing to hear.  She only lasted 3 weeks.  My mom was so strong and brave but it was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to witness.  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. 

Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?

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. 

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
