Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Welcome to Our PanCAN PurpleStride Team Fundraising Page!


I'm taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023.  This will be my 2nd year walking in my husband's memory along side my kids and other family members. 

I lost my husband on December 13th, 2021 to pancreatic cancer 5 months after being diagnosed.  He was a great husband,  father and friend to many.   He was such a happy person always laughing and telling jokes that only he laughed at because he thought they were funny but we never got it but we laughed just watching him laugh.  We miss him each and every day.

He loved his job and his work family at MIT and they loved him.  He always received a call, a visit and get well cards from his work family and that always made his day.  Even with his limited English he built that special bond and relationship from students, professors and everyone in between. 

My walk also is for those we've lost (Tirson and Richie) and survivors (Dr. Oldshue) 

I hope to see you there and have you walk along side us and Team Sunshine. 

I want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and I 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! I’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!
