Raised: $9,581

Goal: $12,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

When Barry was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2018 the five year survival rate was 5%.   Today that number is 13%!

Barry is doing great…his continued success in this fight is due to the new treatment options discovered during research.  Tumor testing found that Barry has the BRCA2 mutation which greatly increased his chances of developing this awful disease, many in our family have since tested positive for this inherited mutation.  His participation, and continued success,  in trials specific to those with PC and BRCA will help those diagnosed today!  

Barry is our miracle.  Surgery, chemo, new medications, stem cell transplants…Barry worked through all the side effects and, today, he is living life and making memories.  He has seen the birth of 2 new grandchildren and is PopPop to 6!  We are again traveling!  He has found new enjoyment in his many hobbies, drumming, model building, etc.  

Pancreatic Cancer…6 years ago we thought he had months…today we see a future living with cancer!  This deadly disease has taken so many, but it can’t take away our determination and our hope!  

Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help us rewrite the future of this disease?

Please join our team and make a commitment to raise money and awareness!  Please ask your friends and family to help you raise money for pancreatic cancer research.  $1, $10, $100!  Please join us at PurpleStride on April 27, 2024 as we walk to support Barry and raise money for continued research and support!  Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.  

Purple ribbons aren’t enough. Please join us in the fight today.
