    Wage Hope at PurpleStride. The walk to end pancreatic cancer.



Raised: $830

Goal: $2,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Please join our team or consider donating in memory of my parents, Ron and Sara Lawhorne! 

It was 2009 when my Daddy was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Several weeks later, my Mom was also diagnosed with this same horrible disease. Needless to say, our world turned upside down. After losing both parents to pancreatic cancer, I have made it my mission to raise awareness about this horrible disease. Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer deaths and still has the lowest survival rate of all major cancers, at just 10%-That is Unacceptable!! I've stepped up to Wage Hope at our 2nd Annual PurpleStride event.  On April 30th we will join all the other Affiliates all over the country and walk to end pancreatic cancer.  Please help us reach our goal by joining my team or making a donation today. Every dollar that you give ensures that the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network can continue working to improve outcomes for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. It may have been too late for my Mom and Dad, but it is not too late to Demand Better for our Survivors, Caregivers, and for the more that 56,700 people who will be diagnosed this year. Purple ribbons aren't enough. Please join me in the fight today.
