Welcome to the personal page of STACY RUBINSTEIN
I was one of the few who advocate for this disease who had no immediate family member diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I worked the medical marketing end of this cancer in a research study at the University of Maryland Medical Center for close to 12 years – so in my eyes, I’ve always had many family members affected by the purple monster.
In December 2016, everything changed. My Uncle Bruce was diagnosed with and continues to battle pancreatic cancer.
This battle has always been very personal – and now, it’s doubly so.
Pancreatic Cancer is the ONLY cause I will ever solicit anyone for donations.
This year, I’m participating in PurpleStride Maryland to celebrate the lives of two teammates who passed away in 2016:
Nancy Jacobs - 9/2016 & Dawn Hill – 12/2016.
For the very first time, I’m walking Stride in continued support, admiration and love for my Uncle Bruce . Bruce is in the small percent of those diagnosed who's tumor was operable. He’s recently undergone a very extensive and successful Whipple surgery performed at the Harry Hillman Cancer Center in Pittsburgh PA.
This is the 4th year our team “Prancers Against Cancer” is participating in Stride Maryland. This is also the 4th year I’m honored to captain this mighty purple group!
PurpleStride Maryland is on October 8th!
I don’t have loads of time– and I need your help to not only reach my own personal goal but to help the overall event reach goal. As you can see, both are huge! This cancer has no cure -finding that cure costs money. I'm asking you to be as generous as possible. Pancreatic cancer is in desperate need of our help! Every dollar makes a difference.
Perhaps you know of someone who fought or is fighting for a cure. If so, make that donation in their honor or support. Their name will show on the scroll bar!
“Nothing Is Impossible With The Power Of Hope!”
Please help me Wage Hope for a cure!
