Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Hello All, 

For those of you that don't know, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in December of 2021! Such a shock. After "beating" breast cancer in 2013, I wasn't ready for another fight, especially one with such dismal stats. 

After surgery and chemotherapy during 2022, I now have no evidence of disease. I realize I am lucky that I was able to have surgery . . . most are not. I was able to tolerate the chemo and now I feel well.  

I have been reticent to share my story because retelling it or sharing statistics is frightening, but I know other cancers have more funding for research, other cancers have double, triple, quadrupal survival rates. Not this cancer. At this time, there is a 12% 5-year survival rate for those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

I'm not sure what the future holds, but I have to do something to help other patients with this diagnosis. If you would like to help, sign up to walk with us on April 27th or follow the link below to donate. 

Here's to 2024 and beyond.
