In Loving Memory of Michael Irwin

In Loving Memory of Michael Irwin


Raised: $9,068

Goal: $5,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

We lost Michael Irwin to pancreatic cancer in June 2021. He was a wonderful father, grandfather, husband, brother, doctor and friend to many, and it was devastating to watch his 7 month battle with such an unforgiving disease. We're so proud of how bravely he fought, and are honored to fundraise in his name and memory in the hopes of helping other individuals and families going through a similar experience.

Mike was born and raised in Texas before he converted to New Yorker after graduating medical school. He loved the big apple, but hated the cold. He held on to a slight southern twang, and a cowboy hat that he wore when it snowed. Mike was the smartest guy in most rooms, and had an amazing career as a practicing doctor, and medical director at Morningside Medical Center. An avid traveler, golfer, and reader, he always had a fast fact to offer up in conversation. He was a supportive father to 4 children (Lauren, Meagan, Ashley and Tyler) and loving husband to his wife, Wendy, who took wonderful care of him until the very end. We miss him every day.

We’re going to help make progress, with your support.

Our team is participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

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.
