    Chris and Charlie in their last embrace June 2021

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Hello all thank you so much for joining me in our fight to raise funds and awareness for this horrible disease. 

I started this team in honor of my dad Chris after his diagnosis October 2020 who lost his battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer after a courageous 9 month battle on July 3, 2021. Not long following Chris, his father Charlie passed away on January 4, 2022 from metastatic pancreatic cancer. To say the least, it's been a year of heartache, yet an eye opening experience. My dad Chris was so proud of this team last year for raising over $10,000 in his honor and he participated in the event from down at his home in South Carolina. Through chemo and sickness, he completed a 5k in better time than most of us healthy participants, although it was no a surprise as dad was a fitness and outdoor enthusiast and always loved a challenge! While we will have one less participant with us this year, I know he would want us to continue to fundraise and fight for awareness. We gained two family angels this year who will be with us in spirit as we walk on April 30th, so please come join us in their honor and for all patients fighting this disease. Raise or donate $50 to get an event day t-shirt!

PanCan Network helps support and provide numerous resources for patients, caregivers and family members through this difficult time as well as contributing and advocating for increased research in the field. Our family utilized many resources from PanCan and are grateful for their programs.

Thank you all!
