    Striding in Memory of Iris & Jerry

Butterfly Kisses


Raised: $871

Goal: $10,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Please join my sister and I in our team’s 2nd Annual Purple Stride in memory of our parents: Iris Atiles and Jerry Nolasco. Our mother, Iris was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in June 2020 and passed away on July 15, 2020. Our father, Jerry was diagnosed with stage 3 pancreatic cancer in March 2021 and passed away on September 21, 2021.

Each fighter was strong, and while their battles were different, unfortunately their outcome was the same. However, this family is not done fighting! 

We won’t allow our parents bravery, courage and hope fade away. It will live on and multiply in their legacy, us, and also through our family and friends. We will walk in celebration of their life, because we believe heaven is healing and they’ve been made whole. But, we also know and believe there is still so much work to be done so this disease doesn’t have to mean terminal. 

Expiration can no longer be the expectation! Cancer must not be fought alone, so we invite you to come be part of our team. If you cannot make the purple stride event in Tampa Bay on Saturday, April 29, 2023, please consider supporting our team’s fundraising goal to support the continued work of the PanCAN network.

Thank you,

Nicole Malta & Gina Nolasco
