Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Welcome to Obi-Rob's Rebels Fundraising Page!

We are walking in memory of Rob Burger, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in late January 2019 and passed away in early February 2020. He went to the hospital on MLK weekend to alleviate back pain that no chiropractor or practitioner had been able to help with. We never expected that he would be diagnosed with cancer, especially pancreatic cancer.  He spent the next nine months pushing through chemotherapy and radiation, prepping for and receiving surgeries, and meeting with specialists at Johns Hopkins. He returned home from his final surgery with a clean bill of health in November, but was readmitted to the hospital in early January due to an infection. Since the infection continued to worsen he was transferred back to Hopkins for expert care, where the doctors discovered the cancer had spread to other organs. In late January, Rob Burger returned home to be with his family and friends.

Our team started participating in PurpleStride in 2019 at Virginia Beach and has participated every year since. This is the biggest fundraising event for pancreatic cancer, funding research for new treatment options and discoveries while also increasing awareness. When Rob Burger was diagnosed the 5-year survival rate was only 9% and now thanks to everyone's help it just recently reached 13%, but pancreatic cancer still has the lowest survival rate of all cancers.

Help our team take steps to end pancreatic cancer at PurpleStride on Saturday, April 27, 2024. We would appreciate a gift of any size to help us reach our goal and you can donate under a specific participant or our team in general, anything helps! Also please feel free to register as a participant too and stride from anywhere virtually or with us in Atlanta!

Thank you for your help!
