Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Please join me in the fight against pancreatic cancer. Approximately 53,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year. Approximately 44,000 people will die of pancreatic cancer this year in the United States. Of the major cancers, pancreatic cancer is the only cancer with a 5 year survival rate of less than 10% (a dismal 9%). Pancreatic cancer has now surpassed breast cancer as the third leading cause of cancer death in the United States. By 2020, pancreatic cancer is predicted to become the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. I am one of the few survivors. I am asking you to help me make the impossible possible by raising critical research funds for earlier detection, more clinical trials, and better treatment options. Please join Team "Go for Gold" on October 7 at Purple Stride San Diego for a 5k walk or run; or join us with your virtual participation and donation. Team Go for Gold's fundraising page is:

Thank you! By making a donation to me, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020.
