Welcome to our team fundraising page!

I’m reaching out to you for your help.

Pancreatic cancer still has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at only 11%. It is the 3rd most deadly cancer in the U.S., passing breast cancer a few years ago. About 60,000 will be diagnosed this year, and about 50,000 will die.

This disease has stolen some our best and our brightest (Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Congressman/Civil Rights Icon John Lewis, Jeopardy's Alex Trebek, Apple's Steve Jobs; the "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin; and Astronaut-pioneer Sally Ride to name just a few). Then there are so many of our friends, work colleagues, and family members who have yet to receive this "dread diagnosis."

This cancer is far more common than you may think, and the number of patients diagnosed with it -- and dying from it -- is still rising. It affects women and men in nearly equal numbers. Tragically, over 70% of newly diagnosed patients die in 1 year or less. 

PanCAN is dedicated to dramatically reducing those numbers, while substantially raising the 5-year survival rate. To convert this "deadly disease" into a "chronic condition" and ultimately find a cure. 

PanCAN is focusing both on early detection (which drives better outcomes) and new and better treatments. Quantifiable improvements are starting to happen.

You can speed that change.

As a 18-year+ survivor, I’m thankful that I was given this extra time and also realize how lucky I am. When I got sick, my only child was just 6 years-old. I did not expect to see her through grade school. Instead, I got to watch her advance in NCAA D1 soccer tournaments at the college of her dreams and then see her graduate in 2022!

I’m stepping up again to Wage Hope at PurpleStride in San Diego in a walk to end pancreatic cancer in De Anza Cove on April 29, 2023. I hope you can join me. Even if you can’t walk with me, you can really help. 

Your donation will fund vital pancreatic cancer research and free services for patients and their families. Won't you help?

Hit the Donatebutton and enter Stu’s Crew as your team. Or, start your own team!

More dollars will allow PanCAN to fund even more research and provide even more Hope for the 60,000+ patients who will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and their families this year and in the years to come. 

Please join me in this fight today. 

You can help PanCAN re-write the future of pancreatic cancer in America.

Thank you!
