Welcome to Our PanCAN PurpleStride Team Fundraising Page!

We are joining PurpleStride in memory of our warrior, Julie, who bravely fought PanCan for 13 months. 

We’re taking steps to end pancreatic cancer on Saturday, April 27, 2024 in hopes that no family has to experience the same pain and heartbreak we did. Known as the "Silent Killer", often times pancreatic cancer isn't diagnosed until advanced stages. 

How you can help:

Donate! As participants we are raising money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients, free support through PanCAN Patient Services, and more. No donation is too small!

Thank you for your support!


Julie’s Story:

In mid 2022 Julie found a lump in her abdomen. Already being a 2x cancer survivor, she feared her lymphoma had returned. By the time her doctors had arrived at a diagnosis the lump had grown rapidly and become painful. The conclusion was stage 4 pancreatic cancer located in the tail of the pancreas and throughout the abdomen. Not operable, radiation was tried with no change to the tumors. She did countless rounds and types of chemo, to no avail. Nothing slowed it down and nothing was going to stop it. Her family spent every spare minute with her. They went on road trips, had game nights, family cookouts, events, concerts, movies, laughter, and so much love. But the clock doesn't stop ticking and time is something there is never enough of. Julie earned her wings in August 2023. 

~She lived, She loved, She laughed, and She left.~ -Unknown
