Goal: $2,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

3 years ago, my grandfather, Alfredo, was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. When I found out, it felt like my entire world had fallen apart. My grandfather was everything to me. He raised me as his own. He taught me how to tie my shoes and how to ride a bike. He drilled me on my multiplication tables and taught me to eat steak. He taught me how to drive and walked me down the aisle as I married my best friend. He has been an integral part of making me who I am today.

He passed away on September 13, 2019 fighting for his life. I not only lost my grandfather, but I also lost my teacher, mentor and friend. I am so grateful that he was there and able to help me raise my oldest daughter for her first two years, however I am sad that she and her younger sister will never be able to truly know the amazing man that he was, only the memories and stories we will tell them.

This April 30, I will participate in PurpleStride to honor him and the legacy he has left. I will be walking in the Pancreatic Cancer Walk, in order to fight this disease, and find a cure! Pancreatic cancer is the world’s toughest cancer with a five-year survival rate of just 9 percent.

I, and many others like me across the country, will walk/run this year to honor a caregiver, a person living with the disease or a loved one we’ve lost, while raising funds and awareness to advance pancreatic cancer care, support and research.

Donate today and show your support for the mothers, daughters, fathers, sons, sisters, brothers, colleagues and friends we are fighting for each and every day. Just click the button below to make a secure, tax-deductible donation online.
