Team Ellyn


Raised: $2,496

Goal: $3,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

On June 28th, it will have been 6 years since the world lost Ellyn. She was selfless and funny and hard working and creative and the best Mom/Wife/Baba/Sister/Aunt/Cousin/Friend any of us could have asked for.  She had so much more living to do.  She deserved more time...

Did you know that Pancreatic Cancer is one of the most deadly cancers with a 5 year survival rate of just 10%? Did you know that there is currently no standard diagnostic tool or established early detection method?  Or that the early symptoms Ellyn experienced - back pain, a sudden onset of diabetes, loss of appetite - were misdiagnosed and overlooked for a really long time?

We’re going to help make progress, with your support.

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.

Every dollar you give 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. 

Please join our team as a participant, or make a gift 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.

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
