If you know Chris, you know he isn't afraid of a challenge.  Our white-water rafting trip was no different, he did most of it with his hands in the air!

We weren't expecting to hear the news..on June 14, 2021 that Chris had pancreatic cancer, but we buckled down and did everything possible to get to the other side.  Chemo, radiation, more chemo, rest, surgery, recovery. Almost a year later, Chris is short a few organs and working through post-surgery recovery - but was in remission!!

This October, we heard the news that the cancer is back, in the liver.  We're starting with 4 rounds of chemo and hoping to join a brand new clinical trial @ the Huntsman Cancer Institute later this year.

We have so many people to thank for their support over the last year.  The love we've felt has been incredible. The Pancreatic Cancer Network ( was also there for us.  We were stunned, scared and confused after the diagnosis.  We found the PanCan network and were immediately connected with a case manager, support group and stories from other survivors and care givers.  

Please join us (in person or virtually) for this year-round national movement that funds life-changing 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. 

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
