Goal: $7,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Purple Stride is back in person this year! We are walking in honor of our survivor, Mark, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer March 16, 2020. After chemo and radiation, he underwent the Whipple surgery in October 2020 to remove his cancer. Mark's most recent scan on February 23, 2022 continued to show "no evidence of disease"!! Huge blessing!! 

Also, this past October 2021, Mark had a full knee replacement so he is ready to walk with us! 

Our entire family is joining the fundraising efforts to help pancreatic cancer researchers find better ways to diagnose and treat pancreatic cancer! Early detection means more lives are saved!

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.
