Welcome to our team fundraising page!
My family and I are raising money for PurpleStride, an event which is taking place this year on April 30, 2022, to support the important and valuable work that Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) has done to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer and, in particular, to promote screening and early detection.
I am a recent beneficiary of that advocacy. In my case, I was very fortunate to have a doctor who, after reviewing my family's history and genetic profile, recommended that I get an abdominal MRI scan. The scan revealed a very small tumor in the tail of my pancreas. Thanks to the screening that led to early detection, my doctors were able to surgically remove the tumor before it could begin to spread, and I am as good as new.
For our family, participating in PurpleStride provides us with the chance to pay forward the lifesaving work carried out by PanCAN every day, so that others can get the screening they need to detect and defeat the world's deadliest major cancer. Our goal is to raise more than $50,000. We hope that you will join us by making a gift of any size and, to show our heartfelt appreciation, Amy and I will match the first $25,000 in donations. You can donate to a team member or make a general donation to our team (Team Screen).
Thank you for supporting PanCAN.
Should you wish to make a donation to support our team through a foundation or donor advised fund, please forward the donation to: PanCAN, Attn: Rick Leonard, 1500 Rosecrans Avenue, Suite 200, Manhattan Beach, CA. 90266. Please include a note or a memo on the check indicating "PurpleStride NYC/Team Screen."
