Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Welcome to Kevin’s Cancer Fighters! 

Our team is participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. 

We are walking in honor of Kevin, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in July 2022 after a tremendous fight. Kevin was able to walk in NJ PurpleStride 2022, and he was so happy to do so. He was extremely impressed with our team and the donation we were able to make. The support he felt was immeasurable, and it gave him so much motivation to keep fighting. This is our third in a year row participating in this wonderful event, and it is our privilege to walk again in Kevin's memory.

According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 66,440 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2024, more people than ever before. Approximately 51,750 Americans are expected to die from the disease this year.

Pancreatic cancer remains the third-leading cause of cancer-related deaths, and it is also predicted to become the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths before 2030. 

The good news is that for the third year in a row, the 5-year survival rate for pancreatic cancer has increased from 12% to 13%, which is an all-time high! This shows our work is truly making a difference. 

Please join our team as a participant, we would love to have you walk with us! You can also make a donation of any size to get us one step closer to our fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. You can donate to a team member or make a general donation to the team.

Every dollar donated means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we. 

Thank you so much for your support!
