Raised: $4,311

Goal: $2,500

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Our team is raising money in loving memory of Jay Counts, who lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2013, just over a year after being diagnosed.  We are also remembering his sister, Janis Ocean, who lost her battle with pancreatic cancer in early 2018.  It is hard to believe, but for over 10 years now, our family and friends have participated in the PurpleStride event in support of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and with the hope of raising awareness of this terrible disease.  Since then, we have, unfortunately, known many friends, neighbors, and family members to also be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  We have to keep fighting the fight and raising awareness every chance we can!  Make a difference today. 

By making a donation to our team, you are supporting efforts to increase access to improved treatments and to double survival rates for this deadly disease.

Please make a donation today and help us make a difference in the lives of those facing pancreatic cancer!
