In Honor of Joan Elliott

In Honor of Joan Elliott


Raised: $1,037

Goal: $1,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

This Saturday, April 30 my family will be walking in PanCAN's PurpleStride in honor of my grandma, Joan Elliott, in locations all across the country - including Boise, Denver, D.C, Richmond, and Atlanta. Now more than ever, we are empowered to make a difference after my grandma was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer in September 2021, which took her life in only 4 short weeks. 

For those who know me, know how special of a bond we had. She was my second mom who helped raised me. Living so close to her for my entire life was one of God's greatest gifts as she is a huge reason I am who I am today. 

By donating to PanCAN, patients & families all over the nation can benefit from one-on-one support and life changing programs to help in their own journey. In addition, raising awareness alone can help more than 62,000 Americans who will be diagnosed this year. 

If you are interested in donating to improve the lives of others, you can visit the "Donate" link below. You can also find more information around the fight to end pancreatic cancer here: 

Thank you!
