I have upped the goal to $2000

Which is $100 for each year since she passed

And if we get it, I will dye (at least some) my hair purple for the event!

Feel free to join me in solidarity! We can do a group photo!


My amazing mom, Lin Fain, died Aug 2002 from pancreatic cancer.

At the time, it was the third leading cause of cancer deaths in America, with life expectancy measured in weeks and months from diagnosis.  She was diagnosed just before her 61st birthday in May of that year.

Survival rate for another 5 years after diagnosis was 4%.

It is now up to 10%, thanks in part to efforts funded by this organization.

So in her honor, I am going to Catonsville Community College in April to fundraise and remember.  She worked for her community college for decades, so that is fitting. :)

Please consider donating to TEAM LIN at any level to make even more progress.  

If you are up for a 5k stroll, we’d love to have you on the team!

Registration is free.  T shirts come at $50.

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. 

Thank you for your support.

Again, look for TEAM LIN

And Thanks!!!
