Welcome to our team fundraising page!

As most of you know I am a very proud Pancreatic cancer survivor and it is so important to me to be a part of this amazing event and show my face as one of the lucky ones. Pancreatic cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in Oregon and has only a 10% survival rate five years past diagnosis. I am more than three year past diagnosis and doing very well, NED (no evidence of disease!!) I will make it to that five year mark and beyond! This year I spoke with member of congress and their staff on behalf of PanCan asking for their help with more funding for research and early detection, which is desperately needed. I am excited to be able to participate in bringing awareness to this cause.  We are back for another year of fundraising for PanCan to help raise awareness of Pancreatic cancer research and other programs for patients and their families!  

We’re going to help make progress, with your support.

Our team is participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds life-changing programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

Please join our team as a participant, or make a gift of any size to get us one step closer to our fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. You can donate to a team member or make a general donation to the team.

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
