Purple Fridays


Raised: $366

Goal: $1,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

My name is Brianna, Captain of Team Purple Fridays, and Pancreatic Cancer is a cause so close to my heart. I was diagnosed with my own pancreatic tumor when I was 20 and was blessed with a wonderful team of surgeons who got me through it. My doctors connected me with PANCAN, and I have been an active member ever since.

PANCAN's Purple Stride is the #1 fundraiser for research, patient programs, and overall awareness of pancreatic cancer. I have set an ambitious goal of $1,000 raised because patients and families need our help more than ever!

I am participating in Purple Stride for more than myself. A few years ago, I lost my Uncle Wayne to Pancreatic Cancer. He was goofy (and a little weird) and I can still hear his voice in my head saying my name. I didn't see him often, but I remember his goofy attitude and horrible Dad jokes that he would tell on Christmas and Easter. He was loud, he was funny, and he almost always had a smile on his face. I stride for Wayne. 

At the beginning of this year, my Aunt Louisa began her battle with Pancreatic Cancer. She is the strongest, sweetest, most no BS woman I have ever met. She is so full of and surrounded by love, that you cannot help but to smile in her presence. As a life-long nurse, Louisa is taking her diagnosis in stride and has complete faith in her medical team. She is keeping a positive attitude, trusting the process, and fighting with everything she's got. I stride for Louisa. 

Please join my team as a participant (from wherever you are) and help us achieve our goal, or make a donation to our team. You can donate to a specific team member or make a general donation to Team Purple Fridays.

Please make a gift of any size to get me one step closer to my fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 

Thank you for your support in the fight against Pancreatic Cancer!
