    Husband, Dad, Pap forever and always

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

This year we walk in honor and memory of my dad.  

My dad was diagnosed with Stage 3 pancreatic cancer in October 2020.  Up until then he was perfectly healthy, enjoying life, traveling, spending time with my mom, and his grandkids.  There is nothing he loved more in this world than his family.  His diagnosis came as a complete shock, and stopped us all in our tracks.  Pancreatic cancer patients have only a 10% chance of survival past 5 years.  Even though the odds were against him, he battled this cancer head on, with dignity and grace.  After giving this disease one hell of a fight, he passed on October 31, 2021.

We walk to honor his life and the wonderful memories he has left us.  We walk to honor the lives of others that have lost their battle with this terrible disease.  We walk to support those currently fighting the fight.

We walk to demand attention, funding, and awareness so that this cancer doesn't remain one of the deadliest. 

We walk to wage hope.

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. 

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.
