AJ's Army


Raised: $1,328

Goal: $5,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

*UPDATE 10/11/21* Mumzie is done with chemo, radiation, AND the Whipple surgery! She is doing well and we are keeping an eye on everything! Right now she is enjoying a visit from her sister! I look forward to bringing AJ's Army back together and raising money for PanCan. <3 Thank you all for the support.

 *UPDATE* Mom is halfway through chemotherapy and doing well! Her numbers are looking good and her doctor is happy! She has a CT next week in Northampton. After chemo, radiation and surgery will follow. A super special shout out to Jane, her amazing friend, for helping out in Marshfield as she gets treatment at MGH. 

Message from AJ: I appreciate all prayers from all faiths and looking forward to the end of  Covid so I can go visit my friends and Cooley and elsewhere. And thanks to the Jazzercise community, too!

Also - we have reached our goal of $1,954! Thank you to everyone who has donated. Our family truly appreciates it.  I have raised the goal to $5,000.


If you know AJ, you know she is a beautiful, hilarious, intelligent, selfless, strong woman. She is a mother, wife, sister, auntie, friend, neighbor. She is a traveler, gardener, reader, and lover of Japanese TV shows, tea, The Beatles, and art. She is quirky, fun, smart, and my role model. 


A few months into her retirement, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She has always been the strongest people I know, and every day she impresses me with her bravery, sense of humor, and determination. 


I’ve stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help me rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today?


The Boston PurpleStride Walk/Run will be virtual this year, on November 1, 2020. Those who would like to run/walk in the Happy Valley are welcome to do with a group of us on November 1. Take your pictures on your run/walk, and please send them to me (Samantha)! 


Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients.


Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join me in the fight today.
