Remembering Brenda "One day at a time"


Raised: $270

Goal: $2,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

My mom, Brenda, passed on September 9, 2021 at the age of 63, from pancreatic cancer. It was the most devastating thing that has ever happened to our family. Unfortunately, by the time they discovered cancer and then determined that it was pancreatic cancer it was too late. This is all too familiar and common with this type of disease. She hadn’t been feeling unwell for that long. From the time we had the final diagnosis until she passed we only had 5 weeks with her.

I am walking the PurpleStride with my daughter, brother and father to honor my mother and raise awareness and funds to help with research and programs for families that are also devastatingly affected by this terrible, aggressive and deadly disease. I hope someday we are able to have an early detection method so nobody has to go through what we did.

We’re 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. 

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.

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
