Welcome to our team fundraising page!
Our team is raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network by participating in PurpleStride LA 2022.
"The Whipplers" is the name we chose for this team because the "Whipple" is the most common surgical procedure performed for pancreatic cancer. The team is made up of nurses, doctors, technicians, allied health professionals, patients, caregivers, friends and families...basically anyone connected to the cause of fighting pancreatic cancer. Our team is mostly from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but anyone is welcome to join.
We are proud to have Cedars-Sinai Support Purple Stride LA 2022 as a Gold Sponsor.
We are proud to have representatives on this team from all walks of care of Cedars - the Cancer Center, Radiology, GI lab, Nursing units, Operating room services, pharmacology, Surgical Oncology, HepatoPancreatoBiliary Surgery, Comprehensive Transplant Center, and hopefully more to follow.
Please help support the team.
