Welcome to team Marvin's Mensches! 

Moments Matter 

I had countless memorable moments with my Dad.  Celebrating family milestones and Jewish holidays, trips Downtown on the Rapid on Black Friday, visits to NASA, walking a full marathon in Phoenix, hearing jokes and lots of stories. I only wish there could have been many more moments.  

My Dad 

Marvin Warshay was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July, 2015.  After a courageous, 2 year battle, he passed away on July 11, 2017. My Dad was an amazingly kind, loving, intelligent and positive person.  And funny—boy was he funny!  I remember him with love, and often with laughter, every day.  I am participating in PurpleStride Cleveland in his memory and in honor of all the fighters out there.  

The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (

attacks pancreatic cancer on all fronts: research, clinical initiatives, patient services and advocacy in an effort to increase the 5-year survival rate from 10%.  20 years ago it was only 5% Just recently, it reached 13%, so we are making progress--but not enough!
