Goal: $2,020

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

In June it will be seventeen years since Jer was given the unbelievable diagnosis of stage four pancreatic cancer. How could a healthy, vibrant man have such an awful cancer growing within? He fought hard believing he could overcome it; however, it was not to be. By December he was gone. He is why I continue to be a part of Purple Stride.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 12%. However, over the years since Jer's death, that number has grown because of the support of many people. This deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination to raise that survival number even more! Our team has stepped up to Wage Hope at PurpleStride, the walk to end pancreatic cancer. Will you help us rewrite this disease's future by donating today?

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. By donating to our team, you are supporting vital efforts to double pancreatic cancer survival by 2025. 

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