Welcome to our team fundraising page!

It's hard to believe my journey with my Mom's pancreatic cancer started in March 2010. What a frightening time because this cancer was only whispered about. There was barely any education, research or funding, and the survival rate made my heart drop. But I was lucky to find this organization and Meem's Team has been walking in the Boise Purple Stride Walk since its inception in 2011. What does scare me is that I know so many others whose lives have been touched by pancreatic cancer.  So let's walk for all our loved ones.  

My Mom Mary Heintz

My dear family friend who was more like family, Arlie Schulz

My Aunt Sue's sweet mother Helen Trott and her brother 

My high school classmate Mark Sullivan

My high school classmate Karen Jacobson

My colleague Mike Carey's brother 

My friend Stacy Kerchove's mother

and all those who are currently fighting the beast.  

I love you all...............
