Marblehead Lakeside holds many fun and awesome memories for us all.Life is too short so cherish every moment with your loved ones!

My Mom

Cynthia (Cindy) Buffie was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in May 2017 and valiantly fought with a strength that most will never know for almost three years. Sadly she lost her fight on January 22, 2020. My mom was one of the strongest, compassionate, loving, caring, wise, and stubborn, in a good way, people I know. I remember her hugs, laughter, passion, and know she will continue to live on in all of us. 

In our family no one walks or fights these battles alone. We are standing up strong in loving memory of our mom and walking to increase awareness of pancreatic cancer and to support research to change the tide. Here’s how you can help:

  1. Join our team and walk with us at PurpleStride to WAGE HOPE and end pancreatic cancer!

  2. Donate today, every dollar helps to support the efforts of Pancreatic Cancer Action Network whose mission is to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and families.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers with 12% 5 year survival rate with early detection. This  deadly disease has stolen our best and our brightest, but it can’t take away our determination. Purple ribbons are not enough. Please join us in the fight today.
