Pop Pop's Pack


Raised: $1,100

Goal: $2,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

I started this team after my Dad, Mark Watts (Pop Pop), passed away from aggressive metastatic pancreatic cancer in Jan. 2021, right before his 62nd birthday.  The toll it rapidly took on him and on our family has been difficult in so many ways. I miss him everyday. Even as a nurse, until his diagnosis I hadn't seen or taken care of many patients with this disease. Now the numbers and ages I've seen have been disheartening. Through grief support, I have learned more of how precious life truly is and how making the most of every moment NOW is so important.

Join with me to help make progress on supporting and finding early detection of this disease.

Please join our team as a participant on this walk 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.

Thank you for your love & support. We love you more Pop Pop!
