Welcome to our team fundraising page!

As many of you know, my mother Sue, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer in December. At that moment, our world stopped. We went from talking about and planning for the future, to just trying to get through one overwhelming hour at a time.  We tried to learn everything we could about pancreatic cancer. We just wanted to "fix it". Learning about the typical prognosis, the lack of research, the limited treatments, and hearing that there is no cure was definitely disheartening.  I sat and thought about how my mom dedicated her life to being of service to others, both in her personal life and through her career.  Now it was her turn to receive help and it felt somewhat hopeless.  It felt lonely and scary and life was filled with more questions than answers.  I came across the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and it felt like there was hope. I knew I had to be a part of this in some way!

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network says, "Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!"  

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

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.
