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.
