On March 17th, 2020, my father passed away from stage 4 pancreatic cancer. At 56 years old, his life was cut short. In two months, this horrible disease took everything out of him and we lost an amazing person. I urge you to donate, join, or share this page in his honor.
My dad, Gary was the best person. He was a kid at heart. Never taking himself too seriously, he taught us how to love life. His jokes, funny faces, love of music, gangster movies and everything extra will live on with us forever. Seeing how much this disease affected him and put his body through everything, his shine never dulled. He never once wanted to quit or give up on his fight.
Losing my Dad has been the most painful thing I have ever endured. Pancreatic cancer took him from us in just two short months. During those painful months, he fought so hard. He stayed positive and never once complained. I want to raise money to fight this horrible disease because I don't want anyone else to feel this helpless pain of their loved ones suffering. We haven't move on; we've moved forward. The pain never goes away. The thought of calling my dad, hearing his voice or giving him one last hug is something I would do anything for. This goal of $10,000.00 will help those fighting and help us get closer to finding a cure. We have the ability to change the outcome of this disease and we have to keep fighting.
In the past year and a half the G Team has raised over $30,000.00 and we have no plans on stopping any time soon. We fight for my dad and all the other warriors out there who are diagnosed with this horrible disease. All year round, we are working hard to get people involved and raise awareness. PurpleStride allows us all to come together and show support. Thank you so much!
