Welcome to PanCAN for Nan!

Help Helen raise $2,500.00

10 years. Later this year, it will have been 10 years since I lost my Nan to pancreatic cancer. 10 years since I realized my passion for waging hope against this horrible disease. In those 10 years, it has been incredible to see the progress researchers have made, to see survivors surpassing the abysmal 5 year survival rates. I'm proud to contribute to that progress with my PurpleStride fundraising efforts year over year.

By making a donation to me, you are supporting efforts to double survival for this deadly disease by 2020! I lost my Nan to this awful disease in 2009, so this cause is near and dear to my heart. 

The day we heard Nan's diagnosis can be categorized as one of the worst days of my life. The moment I heard her diagnosis, my first thought was 'This is a death sentence.' It is one of my biggest dreams to see this change. My hope is for people facing this disease to instead think, 'I CAN FIGHT THIS AND WIN!'

Please make a donation today and help me to reach my fundraising goal!
