Welcome to Our PanCAN PurpleStride Team Fundraising Page!

Hello my Friends,

It’s time again to show our support in the fight against pancreatic cancer.  

Sante’s Fund

For those of you that never met him. He was born in Brooklyn on December 10 1963 (the same day I was born except 2 years later).

He was named after his grandfather Sante Pesce fittingly so, a strong willed man gifted with inner and outer strength and like Sante he had a heart of gold.

He had a unique gift and ability to befriend strangers, there was something about him that allowed him to connect and endear himself with everyone.

He and his wife raised five children (We are proud of them, they are exemplary young adults) even through some adverse times he was able to provide for his family and give them a college education. He was the type of person that literally would give you the shirt off his back.

He would be there in your time of need, no matter what time it was. Never asked for anything in return.

He was kind, considerate and loving. He had an incredible sense of humor. He loved everyone fully and he was loved back. It hurts so much to write his epitome. As his daughter said at his Eulogy this was not fair.

He was taken from us unexpectedly and too soon. His memory will live in our hearts.

His love of life will remain emblazoned in our memories for ever. We love you Sante.

Please help me in honoring his memory by contributing to his cause. He was a warrior in his battle against cancer.

Though he lost his battle please help us in winning the WAR. Please contribute  to Sante’s and now my cause. Help us to end this devastating and deadly disease.

My team and I are taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023.

We want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and we need your help to do that!

PanCAN PurpleStride is the number one way PanCAN raises money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients, and gives them free, personalized one-to-one support through PanCAN Patient Services.

Here’s where you come in! We’ve set an ambitious fundraising goal – because the more money we raise, the bigger impact we make – and would appreciate a gift of any size to help us get there.  

PanCAN PurpleStride is for everyone, and we’d love for you to join our team! Just click the Register button at the top of this page and follow a few easy steps to get set up. And anyone who registers and raises $50 will receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2023 T-shirt!

Can we count on you to get us one step closer to the day where pancreatic cancer patients don’t just survive but thrive?

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support!
