Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Ivanna, my mom, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer with metastasis to the liver in July 2018 at the age of 49 and was given a prognosis of 6 months to a year. My mom was a warrior and was prepared to battle the disease with every fiber of her being. However, the cancer was very aggressive, and she passed away on September 21st, 2018. Two things happened that day: her life was prematurely cut short by pancreatic cancer, and my life became segmented into two parts - before and after this.

In 2023, the 5-year relative survival rate for pancreatic cancer is 12%, an increase from 8% in 2018. Insurmountable research and advocacy are necessary to advance pancreatic cancer patients' survival. This is where PanCAN PurpleStride comes in! 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.

I'm taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCan PurpleStride on Saturday, April 29, 2023, and I need your help!

PanCan PurpleStride is for everyone, registration and participation are free, and I'd love for you to join me! Just click the Register button at the top of this page and follow a few easy steps to get set up. Anyone who registers and raises $50 will receive an official PanCan PurpleStride 2023 T-shirt!

I want to make the most significant impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients - and I need your help to do that! A donation of any size will bring us one step closer to the day when pancreatic cancer patients don't just survive but thrive.

Thank you for your support!​
