I WAGE HOPE in honor of my niece, Carmen Reyes. She died from pancreatic cancer 15 years ago at the age of 28. We thought she had her whole life ahead of her.
Before she died, I made her a promise that I'd keep her memory alive, so that her daughter would always remember what a wonderful, beautiful, and vibrant woman she was. PurpleStride is my way of honoring that promise, and being a part of the fight against pancreatic cancer! Please know that all donations are greatly appreciated, and every dollar get us closer to achieving our goal of doubling survival by the year 2020. Donations can be made through this page, and you can also sign up as part of "Carmen's Crew" to walk or run at your own pace.
