Captain's Fight

Captain's Fight


Raised: $9,502

Goal: $2,000

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

Our dad, Bob Frank (the Captain) fought pancreatic cancer until his final day April 21st 2022. He was diagnosed March of 2021. Penn medicine and PanCan gave him the tools and support for his fight. The clinical trial and advancements gave us one more year of memories. Time to celebrate holidays, birthdays, boating days, and one more trip to Disney. We started participating in purple stride to honor our Aunt Judy, dad’s sister, who also passed away of pancreatic cancer in 2002. This year we stride for them and all the pancreatic cancer fighters out there.

We’re going to help make progress, with your support.

Our team is participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

Please join our team as a participant, or make a gift of any size to get us one step closer to our fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. You can donate to a team member or make a general donation to the team.

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
