Welcome to TeamTree's PanCAN PurpleStride 

Where we honor the enduring legacy of our beloved PanCAN fighter, 

Teresa Peterson

Teresa, fondly known as Tree, was our daughter, sister, mother, aunt, wife, colleauge, manager, and to everyone, she was a trusted friend. After her diagnosis, she bravely stood in the face pancreatic cancer until her battle's end in October 2016.

Tree was eager to wheel around the Purple Stride event that was then held in October, with all of her loved ones. Her vision was clear: She wanted to champion the development of early detection tests so others wouldn't face the late revelation of their low survival odds. 

Though she was not physically present with us at the 2016 Purple Stride event, Tree's strength and love was so strong with all who participated and walked in her honor. Since Team Tree's first event, our team has collectively raised over $10,000 towards PanCAN research and treatment development! 

Today, Team Tree continues to carry the torch for the cause that Teresa held close to her heart. We stride forward, not only in her honor but with a shared commitment to making a lasting impact in the fight against pancreatic cancer.

Join us on Saturday, April 27, 2024, as we take meaningful steps at the ultimate walk to end pancreatic cancer, PanCAN PurpleStride. Together, we play a crucial role in raising funds for vital research, creating pathways for new treatment options, and providing free, personalized, one-to-one assistance through PanCAN Patient Services – which can be a lifeline for those affected by this challenging disease.

Your generosity is the key to our collective impact. We've set an ambitious fundraising goal of $10,000 because we believe in the profound power of coming together. The more funds we raise, the greater the impact we can make on the lives of patients and their families. Your donation, regardless of size, contributes significantly to this meaningful cause.
