Goal: $1,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

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

Before our first PurpleStirde in 2017, I remember sitting next to my mom trying to think of a name of this team. We ultimately landed on Reneata's Farm Heroes because she loved playing Farm Hero Saga while she was going through chemo, recovering surgery, sitting in the doctor's waiting room, or just up at 3AM because she had a pass for unlimited lives. It's hard to believe that was seven years ago

During the first PurpleStride ceremony I attended, they brought the survivors on stage and had them say how long they had been a survivor. Some ranged from a few months to a few years, but one woman said she was a 17-year survivor. When I heard her say that, I was so inspired and it brought so much hope to my heart, to know that this was possible. I knew I wanted my mom to be on stage encouraging future survivors. That was seven years ago! That's seven years of progress and hope. That's seven years of my mom being living proof that research makes a difference. That's seven years of support from our family and friends! Thank you all for the continuous support and love you have shown! We're happy to pay this forward to those who are currently battling pancreatic cancer and those who do not know this is a battle they will face. 

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 life-changing 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!
