Welcome to our team fundraising page!

My family and I are raising money for the PurpleStride Event taking place on April 30th, 2022! The Pancreatic Cancer Network is an amazing foundation that helps spread necessary awareness to end pancreatic cancer.

At 19 years old, I was diagnosed with a very rare, stage 1 tumor on my pancreas. I was extremely lucky that my doctor found the tumor when he did, and I had Whipple Surgery to remove this tumor. Since this rare type of pancreatic cancer was not genetic, the only reason that I am cancer free and living today is because I had such bad symptoms that I couldn't ignore. 

Unlike my story, having these symptoms isn't always the case, and I really believe that increasing awareness on simple information about risks, symptoms, and testing of pancreatic cancer can SAVE LIVES. PanCAN is such a great resource for all of this information, as well as, providing so many resources for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. 

I would appreciate any kind of donation to help meet my fundraising goal because any little bit can help transform the future of pancreatic cancer!
