Jan & Joan's Sunbeams of Hope

Jan & Joan's Sunbeams of Hope


Raised: $4,400

Goal: $5,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

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

We organized this team to honor our Moms' lives, memories, and battles against pancreatic cancer. April 2022 marks two years since we lost Jan and Joan to this horrible disease. They both enjoyed sunny days, spending time with their families and grandkids, and summer fun - Joan boating at the lake and Jan enjoying the beach and waves. 

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 amount 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. We hope as many of you as possible can walk with us at the zoo on April 30th!

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

The Gaydos, Kocher, Gregg & Kaszar families thank you for your support!
