Welcome to our team fundraising page!

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

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

My team & I will be striding in PanCAN’s PurpleStride on Saturday, 4/30/22!  

PurpleStride is a year-round national movement that funds life-changing programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. It is returning in person (with masks recommended) and taking place at Lake Merritt in Oakland. 

Why do I stride again for the third year? Because I'm grateful I'm still here after being diagnosed in January 2020, enduring 6 months of chemo treatment & 6 weeks of radiation, surgery in December 2020, and only after a few short months following surgery, finding out the cancer has returned and metastasized to my lungs & recently confirmed to other areas as well. After another 6 months of chemo that proved to not be working, I have started a new chemo treatment that hopefully will be effective. Although I’m disappointed, I still have hope and feel fortunate I've been feeling pretty good and have been able to live a somewhat normal life so far which includes traveling as much as possible!  Being able to raise funds for an organization who helps so many people on their journey fighting this horrible disease and the loved ones supporting them along the way brings me so much joy and purpose too.

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. 

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your consideration and support.

With love & gratitude,

Kim Luna
