Twin Warriors: Leila and Edith


Raised: $4,591

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.

Our Moms, Leila and Edith, never met each other. Yet simultaneously they were courageously fighting against Pancreatic Cancer. Always with a smile, and with a deep, unbreakable faith, they instilled that fighting spirit in us, their daughters, Kierra and Avec. The more we learn about their lives, the more we realize that our Moms were kindred spirits who had so much in common! Twins who never met. To honor their memory, to continue their legacy, and to help increase life expectancy for others fighting this disease, we have decided to join forces, striding and smiling for our "Twin Warriors".

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.

New this year: there will be a PurpleStride event in a city near you, and this year these events are happening on the same day! That means that you can join as a participant of our team, and walk "with us" and all the other PurpleStriders from wherever you are, even if you can't make it to Detroit.

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your love and support.

Kierra and Avec
