Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Dec 2017 I heard the words that would forever change my world.  “I have bad news, and I have good news for you.”  “Bad news is, you have pancreatic cancer.  Good news, you might have a chance of being in the 2% that survives 5 years.”  My world forever changed with that conversation.  Since then, symptoms, pain, Whipple, recovery, tests, chemo, emotions, and so much more.   The doctors and nurses have been there for me, doing their jobs with so much skill and compassion.   But equally as important are my family, friends, and church family.....always by my side, always taking care of me, always surrounding me in laughter, and hugs, and prayers.   Even though this is good reason to celebrate, I can not.  My story does not end yet.   There are more chapters to be written.  And one chapter for sure will be about the changes to this deadly diagnosis that come about from awareness.  I need to continue to do my part to raise awareness!  Hopefully you will be part of this chapter with me. 

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.  

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