Gallagher Team

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 10%.   JUST 10%.

This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, our loved ones and friends.  And Jim Gallagher, a husband, brother, friend, uncle, father, and recent grandfather.  My dad. 

This picture was taken in December 2013 after his cancer diagnosis.   My dad was so full of life and determined to fight this disease.  He had plans to retire with my mom in early 2014, travel the world, and enjoy his recent promotion to "pap-pap", so the only option was to fight.  Unfortunately,  this disease was too aggressive and he had passed away within four short months.  

We've stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer, to help others battling this disease. Will you help us 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. A 10% five-year survival rate is not enough.  Please join or donate to the Gallagher Team today to help give someone else a fighting chance.
