Goal: $5,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

In honor and loving memory of the world's toughest cookie, Dawn Hamberry.

After spending a week in the hospital, Dawn was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November of 2018.  She spent the majority of her admission reminding her doctors that she wasn't to miss the Thanksgiving Redskins vs. Cowboys game she had bought tickets to in Dallas for the following week.  Dawn's battle ended in August of 2019.  She fought until the very end, all the while dressed in Lilly Pulitzer and still managing to never miss a single vacation.  Dawn loved spending her time laughing with family and friends, sunning in the Keys, impromptu shopping sprees, snuggling with any dog and a good glass of wine.  Raise a glass and join us in our battle against pancreatic cancer in her memory.

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

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.
