Welcome to our team fundraising page!

In loving memory of Kathy Pasquarette. 

Kathy was diagnosed in March 2019.  A trip to the ER revealed multiple blood clots in her lungs which was in itself life threatening.   But the CT scan also showed tumors on the pancreas and liver.  The doctor told us the news and then began to list out treatment options.   She began intense chemo with great results at first then switched to a clinal trial and then back to chemo.  During this time, she saw both of her kids get married and start their new lives.  As too many people know, cancer treatments take their toll and for some the options run out.  Kathy’s earthly journey ended in January 2021.  

We learned that many people never have treatment “options” as this disease is so aggressive and when you get that terrible news no options remain. 

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.
