Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Ken Ross was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in September 2016.  By the time he was diagnosed the cancer had spread to his liver.  He was only 55 when he died in February 2017.  The symptoms of pancreatic cancer are similar to other typical problems; heartburn, fatigue, back pain.  Providers can't see or feel the pancreas and there are no early detection tools/protocols available.  Often, once pancreatic cancer is properly diagnosed, it is too late.  That is why fundraising for research to find a cure and early detection is necessary.  If you can give, give and know that the $ is going to a great, great cause to help fund research.  If you can't, then please be aware of this horrible and silent disease.

Ken was the youngest in our family of five.  He left behind two great kids, his mom, siblings, and many friends who loved him dearly.  He had such a funny wit and loved his family with such velocity that it seems to burst from him.  He is missed every single day.
