Welcome to Our #RallyforRIZ PanCAN PurpleStride Team Fundraising Page!

On November 11, 2020 our lives changed forever as our beloved husband, dad and pappy, John Louis Rizzi, was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.  It was inoperable as it had already metastasized to his other organs.  After a courageous nine-month battle, John passed away on August 21, 2021. Please join me and my family as we honor John Rizzi on Saturday, April 27, 2024 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Pancreatic cancer has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers at just 12%. We want to change that!!

PanCAN raises money to fund vital research that brings new treatment options to patients, and offers them free, personalized one-on-one support through PanCAN Patient Services.  Every dollar that you donate ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to create better outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Thank you for your support in keeping John's dream alive of finding a way to end Pancreatic Cancer!! No one fights alone, and we continue to rally for all pancreatic cancer patients. #RallyforRIZ.

With much appreciation and love,

Edyce, Ali, Brandon, Oliver, Emerson, Margo, Mike and new twins Harper and Landon
