Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Dear Friends and Family,

My Mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the fall of

2009. She was a healthy and active woman with no serious

symptoms until she felt ill after a trip. Little did we know that

she had a tumor slowly growing in her pancreas and our

world was changed forever.

She began her fight against this terrible disease armed with

knowledge, the love and support from friends and family,

and a strong will to live. She fought a courageous battle

against this cancer for two and a half years. Almost ten years have

passed since we lost her to pancreatic cancer and not a day goes 

by that we don’t remember her vow to make the most of every day.

My family and I continue to Wage Hope in her memory and for a cure, by 

raising money in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and 

participating in PurpleStride. Your gift will support the Pancreatic Cancer 

Action Network's world-class programs that are changing lives for all those 

affected by pancreatic cancer through research, advocacy, patient services 

and much more.

By making a donation to our team, you are supporting efforts to double 

survival for this deadly disease by 2020. Any amount, great or small, helps in the fight.

Please make a donation today and help us reach our fundraising goal of $5000! 

You can make your donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message.

Thank you for your support!

Love, the Neeson family
