Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Welcome to Our PanCAN for Ann PurpleStride Team Fundraising Page!

I am reaching out to you with a heart full of hope and determination as my mom, Ann Luckoski, continues her courageous battle against pancreatic cancer. On her behalf, our team, Hearts in Spades, wants to make the biggest impact on the lives of pancreatic cancer patients – and we need you to do it!

About a year ago, my mom received the devastating diagnosis, but she has been facing this challenge head-on, with incredible strength and resilience. Despite the odds, she has been fighting like a champ, undergoing chemotherapy treatments and radiation with unwavering determination. Her tumor, though inoperable, has responded remarkably well to treatment, shrinking significantly and giving us all a glimmer of hope.

We've named our team "Hearts in Spades" as a nod to my mom's love for playing cards (especially Euchre) and as a testament to the immense amount of heart she puts into everything she does. She is truly a force to be reckoned with, a shining example of strength, grace, and resilience.

We’re taking steps at the ultimate walk to end pancreatic cancer, PanCAN PurpleStride, on Saturday, April 27, 2024.

PurpleStride participants raise money to fund vital research that can bring new treatment options to patients; free, personalized, one-to-one support through PanCAN Patient Services; and more.

Here’s where you come in! 

We’ve set an ambitious fundraising goal – because the more money we raise, the bigger impact we make – and would be profoundly grateful for your donation. A gift of any size will help patients and families facing a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.  

Want to help in a bigger way? We’d love for you to join our team! Just click the Register button at the top of this page to get started. Register for free, raise $50 and you’ll receive an official PanCAN PurpleStride 2024 T-shirt!

Let’s show everyone impacted by pancreatic cancer that we’re fighting for them – thank you for your support!
