Welcome to our team fundraising page!

PurpleStride is Back!

The new date is April 30, 2022!

We can finally get Team Mary back together again!

April is a very fitting month to fight this terrible disease  That was the month Mary lost her battle with pancreatic cancer.  What better time to gather in her name to do our part to defeat this disease.

PanCan has been funding research not only to treat pancreatic cancer but to find ways to identify the cancer early.  There are 2 new blood tests that are designed to detect this cancer.  It's not approved by the FDA but it is available in most states for those at high risk.  This new development is exciting and is made possible, in part, by the funds that we bring in for research.

I can't emphasize enough how critical research and the money to fund it is needed.

If you can't walk and raise money with us on Apri 30, it's so important that you make a donation directly through this page for Team Mary.  Any amount helps. Pancreatic cancer is still one of the hardest to detect and deadliest cancers but, due to its relative rarity, it's charitable support lags behind many of the other forms of cancer.

Please hold on to Mary's memory!  She was a doer.  She never hesitated to jump in and help people. She would want all of us to help others that have this horrible disease.

Thank you!   I'm looking forward to seeing you all in Philadelphia in April.
