Remembering Doug


Raised: $1,470

Goal: $5,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Our team is raising money to support the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for Portland's PurpleStride 2022 being recognized on Saturday April 30, 2022 at the Portland International Raceway. I won't be walking this year in Portland but will be walking on vacation, so I am asking you to donate and walk as you wish to support those who are struggling with pancreatic cancer, and those who have lost their lives to it. The walk has changed and this year everyone across America will be walking on the same day, to support pancreatic cancer initiatives.

Many of you know my husband Doug died of a fairly rare neuroendocrine carcinoma of the pancreas that had spread to his liver. Other people who have succumbed recently include Senator John Lewis, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Alex Trebek.  Usually there are no symptoms for this cancer until it has spread extensively.  Thus this cancer is one of the deadliest.  Research is being done on all types of pancreatic cancers across the US, and I am hoping for early detection for others so they can get the treatment they need to live a long life with their family and friends.

By making a donation to our team, Remembering Doug, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2030. There have been inroads to survival, now an 11% five year survival rate, up from 9% a couple of years ago.  

I would love to have you join me and the team in the effort to support the PanCAN Portland Purple Stride on Saturday April 30 by simply donating any amount to support this cause that has affected so many of our friends, coworkers, and families. Any amount helps, no matter how small. 

Please make a donation today and help to surpass our fundraising goal!

Please stay safe and in good health.....

With gratitude,

Alison Paul Miller
