Welcome to our team fundraising page!

In memory of my husband, Keith Stough, I'm taking steps to end pancreatic cancer at PanCAN PurpleStride on Saturday, April 27, 2024. I am the captain of team “For the Love of Keith".  

For those of you from Lockton, my daughter, Stephanie Graber has been with Lockton for 10 years. Your generous donations in memory of Keith mean so much to our family. We must end this monstrous disease. Thank you and we appreciate your support. 

Here is our story:

On November 27, 2022, my husband of 34 years, the father of my children, and the love of my life lost a short, but courageous battle with a beast known as pancreatic cancer.

He was diagnosed on September 24, but unfortunately by the time we learned of his disease, the tumor was very large, and had already metastasized to his liver, abdominal lining, and lymph nodes. After only knowing he had the disease for 31 days, he went on hospice. In just another 34 days, he lost his battle.
When we learned of the diagnosis, we were expecting Keith to have about nine months to live. He barely made it two months, and it was an arduous fight. We barely had time to accept his illness, and he was already gone.

This has been such a terribly painful experience for Keith and all of us left behind. I urge you to learn about the symptoms:

PanCAN PurpleStride is the number one way PanCAN raises money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients, and gives them free, personalized one-to-one support through PanCAN Patient Services.

Here's where you come in! I've set an ambitious fundraising goal because the more money I raise, the bigger impact we make and would appreciate a gift of any size to help me get there.

PanCAN PurpleStride is for everyone, and I'd love for you to join us!
