Strider Stories 

It was by pure chance that I went to the emergency room one day in May. Who knew what I thought was “gas pain” would change my life forever.

In 1989, Todd Horne lost his mother to the disease. Then in 2015, Todd was diagnosed with stage II pancreatic cancer.

Editor’s Note: Todd lost his fight with pancreatic cancer, but his story continues to inspire others to Demand Better for patients and their families.

We stride because it's what "Papa Z" would have done. Creating Team Papa Z has been one of the best decisions I've ever made.

My mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January of 2016. I’m committed to helping to ensure we reduce the pain and suffering of those who will also face this deadly disease.

  • Friday, November 16 from 11 a.m. - 3: p.m. at Big Peach Running Company - Midtown

CTCA Atlanta — Cancer Symptoms Blog

Our sponsor, CTCA of Atlanta, published a blog post on the most common symptoms of cancer and what not to ignore. You may view the full article on their website. Learn more.

We stride to make sure that other people have a chance, because a five year survival rate of 9 percent is unacceptable and because it's what "Papa Z" would have done.
