Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Welcome to Our PanCAN PurpleStride Team Page in Memory of Avito! 

Our dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December 2022, and it was a shock to us all. Unsurprisingly, dad faced his diagnosis with faith, hope, and courage. He received treatment with the incredible team at UCLA for 9 months, passing in September 2023.

Our dad had the unwavering support from family, near and far, and his beloved American Martyrs Church community.

No one loved to live life more than Avito. We feel so grateful to have been able to go on his bucket list trip to Portugal in June 2023. We made memories we will cherish forever!

In April 2023, our family walked PanCAN’s Purple Stride together. We loved the uplifting and supportive space it provided for not only dad, but our entire family. We hope everyone who knew and loved Avito will join us for Purple Stride on April 27, 2024.

We want to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and we 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! We’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 2024 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!
