Innovate to beat pancreatic cancer


Raised: $538

Goal: $2,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Let’s walk together to honor Christine Bennett and make a difference in fighting this terrible disease. 

As we start to regain some sense of normalcy it feels so wrong for our mom not to be here with us. At the beginning of the pandemic our family was in very regular touch - planning, checking in on one another, passing the time - and then mom got sick and died so quickly. As we get our vaccinations, sit on a patio to drink a glass of wine, contemplate new schools with Abigail and Nora, or take a walk on a warm day, it seems totally unfair that our mother is not here to share in that with us. 

We were not able to have a traditional memorial service because of the pandemic. So we would like to ask, with no expectation, if you might like to join us in remembering our mom through participation in the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network’s purple stride on April 30, 2022 in Baltimore. You are welcome to join our team, make a donation, or root us on if you can. 

We chose a picture of mom on a happy day to share on our team page. Through research and innovation we hope that some progress can be made against this terrible disease so that in the future family’s get more time together after diagnosis.
