Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Welcome to "Prep for Melissa's" PanCAN PurpleStride Team Fundraising Page!

Hello, there!

My team and I are taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 27, 2024 in honor of our beautiful friend and colleague, Melissa Monaco.  We lost Melissa on November 12, 2022 after a brief battle with this horrific disease.   Pancreatic cancer is very aggressive and often develops with few warning signs.  Our Melissa, never even knew her diagnosis, as it came only days before she succumbed to organ failure in the ICU.  Please help us in the fight for pancreatic cancer in memory and honor of Melissa, our forever Angel. 

"Prep for Melissa" needs your help! There are so many patients and families who need us now more than ever and we would appreciate a gift of any size to help us reach our goal.  

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!

Thank you so much for your support!
