Goal: $2,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Join Trava Team Rob to support our own Rob Beeler, a 4 year pancreatic cancer survivor! 

He lost his sister Jenelle to pancreatic cancer in 2016 so when he received his diagnosis he said he was obviously really worried. Luckily., the science had advanced and Rob was eligible for immunotherapy based on the makeup of his tumor. After 8 rounds of chemo, a week of radiation, and two rounds of immunotherapy, he had a successful Whipple procedure at Dana Farber in Boston in July of 2019. Rob is convinced that the immunotherapy was the game changer. 

He said he feels so grateful for all the research that has gone into this disease, and just wish it had been available for his sister. This inspires him to fight this disease with PanCAN, hoping one day we can prevent it from affecting more lives. 

Rob is currently a PurpleStride co-chair along with his wife, Colleen.


Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

We’re going to help make progress, with your support.

Our team is participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

Please join our team as a participant, or make a gift of any size to get us one step closer to our fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. You can donate to a team member or make a general donation to the team.

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
