Cathy's Purple Cancer Eaters


Raised: $9,612

Goal: $8,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

May 7th marked four years since my diagnosis of Stage 3 pancreatic cancer.  Unfortunately, I'm now Stage 4 and back in chemo as my cancer returned in January 2022.  So many have followed my journey and supported me as I and my family fought this dreadful disease. If you want to know all that has been going on, my Caring Bridge site has the details -

But the fight will continue with your help. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 10%. 

Our team, Cathy's Purple Cancer Eaters has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer on April 30th.

Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by joining us or making a donation today?

•    Registered participants who raise $50 or more by April 10th will be guaranteed a PanCAN PurpleStride T-shirt.
•    Please note, each individual must be registered and raise $50. Donations to me or the team don't get the shirt.
•    If you’d like to change your registration type, please contact Customer Service at or 877-272-6226. They can make these changes for you until the online registration deadline.

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  or joining our team, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival rates.
Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.

Love to see you on April 30th at the Tivoli!
