Raised: $125

Goal: $7,500

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 10% and this disease took my Dad away 8 years ago.  On July 18, 2012 he was scheduled for a 6-8 hour surgery to remove the tumor they found after several months of digestive issues and back pain and 61 days later he was gone.  SIXTY-ONE DAYS....while courageous and brave throughout his journey, he like so many others were not given a fighting chance against this silent killer and that is simply unacceptable.  This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our passion and determination to make a difference for the current and future patients and their families.

Team Aldo is being formed in memory of my Dad to step up to Wage Hope at this year's Virtual PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer.  Just like our mantra in 2012, I am still committed to Cowboy Up and Team Rope Pancreatic Cancer and I am asking that you join me by participating as a walker yourself as a member of my team or make a donation to help us rewrite the future of this disease.  

Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. By donating to our team, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2020. 

Donate $2 in recognition of the 2nd annual PurpleStride in the state of Arkansas

Donate $8 to acknowledge the 8 years time and memories taken from us by this disease

Donate $10 to celebrate reaching 10% five-year survival for the first time

Donate $20 in support of all the research being done this year towards increasing survival 

Donate $61 to represent the number of days my Dad fought this horrible disease

Donate $74 in honor of the age my Dad would have turned on his birthday this year (Nov 2nd)

Donate $440 in remembrance of the 440 Arkansans that will be taken by this cancer this year.

Together, we can make a difference....Please join us in the fight today.
