Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Welcome to Our PanCAN PurpleStride Team Fundraising Page!

"Standing With Sarah" is in honor of Sarah Kasischke (soon to be McEldowney), who was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in September of 2023. Sarah had the Whipple surgery on 28SEP, and started chemotherapy in December.

Please join our team to show your support for Sarah while she battles this disease, and help us donate more to the cause. Pancreatic Cancer has a shockingly low survivability rate, and we all need to do more to increase visibility.

We’re taking steps at the ultimate walk to end pancreatic cancer, PanCAN PurpleStride, on Saturday, April 27, 2024.

PurpleStride participants raise money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients. A gift of any size will help patients and families facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.  

Annie will send out more details about meeting before/after closer to the event! Hope to see you there :)
