Welcome to our team fundraising page!

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


We are 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. 


THIS YEAR MARKS 10 YEARS SINCE WE LOST MY AUNT MARIA TO PANCREATIC CANCER. I'M WALKING IN HONOR OF HER MEMORY. 


My aunt Marika (Maria) Corvelli was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2012. On 8/14/2012, 3 days after her 62nd birthday, and only 6 WEEKS after her diagnosis.... She passed away at her home surrounded by loved ones. 


Anyone who knew her would say how beautiful her soul was. She volunteered at a Native American reservation by her home in Lake Placid NY, her art was featured on the Adirondack Artists website, and her love for animals and nature made her... her.


She deserved more of an opportunity to fight. She deserved a chance at survival. 


It's been decades since any major medical strides in the diagnosis and treatment methods for pancreatic cancer.


Most of the time, symptoms only occur once the cancer metastasizes and by then, it's too late. There is no generic screening available making early detection extremely difficult and rare. 


Clinical trial research and programs must have enough funding to make survival a possibility to those who are diagnosed. 


PANCREATIC CANCER SHOULD NOT BE E DEATH SENTENCE. 


Please make a gift of any size to get Marika's Wings one step closer to our fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 


Patients and families need us now more than ever.


Thank you for your support.
