"I participated in my first PurpleStride just six months after my diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, and was honored to give the survivor speech. The incredible support of my team and all of the participants and volunteers at the event was humbling and inspiring. The fight against pancreatic cancer has a long way to go, but I am confident that with the work of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network we can change the statistics for pancreatic cancer."
