Goal: $2,500

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Team SUR5IVOR+ is raising money to support PanCAN by participating in PurpleStride in honor of Pancreatic Cancer Survivor Larry Novicky and Pancreatic Cancer Fighter Nelida Koppius.

In September 2018, Larry was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and started treatment for this horrible disease. This year marks a milestone to celebrate—6 years—since he began the battle, and he is winning! In 2024, Larry is cancer free! Surviving pancreatic cancer is a miracle that defies the odds, and few patients and their loved ones are blessed with this outcome. 

Nelida was diagnosed in February of 2024 and is currently in treatment. While treatment has come a long way, more research needs to be done in early diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic cancer.

We'd love for you to join our team by making a donation and/or walking with us at the PanCAN Purplestride on Saturday, April 27th, 2024. Let's take steps together to GIVE HOPE to those affected by pancreatic cancer. One day, many more patients will survive, thrive, and walk the PurpleStride wearing white. 

Your donation will go directly to battling this disease. Just click  Join this Team or Donate at the top of this page and follow a few easy steps to get set up. Anyone who registers and raises $50 will receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2024 T-shirt!

Thank you for your support!
