AHN Peggy's Hope Brigade

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

An official partnered team of Allegheny Health Network

Peggy was the lead nurse for the pancreatic surgery team at AHN for close to 30 years.  She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January 2021 and passed away in June 2021.  Peggy was an integral part of the pancreatic surgery team at Allegheny General Hospital and her hard work, dedication, and compassion were well known by her patients and coworkers.  We are honored to continue working with her family and friends to raise money in support of pancreatic cancer research.

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

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 lifechanging 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.
