Potter's Purple Warriors


Raised: $152

Goal: $1,500

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

In February 2018 the Patriarch of the Potter Family lost his two year battle with pancreatic cancer! Wallace Potter, lovingly known as Wally, Poupie and Potter, was a proud Veteran, a hunter, a gardener, a Husband, a Father, Grandfather and Friend. He is deeply missed by all who knew and loved him especially his four legged companion, a yellow lab named Brooke!

Wally was an intelligent, strong and stubborn man who refused to give up!He fought hard, as he has always done.  Unfortunately, pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers. This deadly disease has stolen so many, but it can't take away our determination.

We've stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer to help others fight!Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease by making a donation today? Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. 

By donating today, you are supporting vital efforts. Purple ribbons aren't enough. Please join me in the fight today! 

We also invite you to join Potter's Purple Warriors to #WalkforWally on April 29th at Roger Williams Temple to Music. All are welcome! Please consider joining our team; it’s going to be a #PurpleParty!
