Welcome to our team fundraising page!

My beautiful wife, Teresa, was diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer in July of 2022. She was so amazingly courageous and gracious while battling this horrible disease for 8 months. Sadly, she was taken from us way too soon on March 19th of last year. We all miss her deeply but will always have so many great memories of her contagious smile, laughter and loving hugs. 

This past fall Teresa’s mother (Linda Donlea) was also diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer.  Linda is living life to its fullest, and we all aspire to live life like Linda - full of energy and nonstop on-the-go fun! Many of Teresa and Linda’s family and friends, including myself, will be participating in the 2024 PanCan Purple Stride walk on Saturday, April 27th. It would mean so much to our family, and so many others who have loved ones impacted by pancreatic cancer, for your support of our team - "Trese's Troops".

Thank you so much!
